71 Miles To Go

71 miles to go
Responsible parents would have put their children to bed by now
Responsible parents?
No one puts their children to bed early
Or on time

70 miles to go
Two asleep
Two singing
One watching

She and I are playing peekaboo with the moon
The man in moon peeks at us
Then disappears behind the blackest of clouds
Just his eyes appear in a break then slowly sink down
Someone has put the moon to bed

She says it looks like an animal

Look! It’s nose

It’s a bit magical

If she was asleep, we wouldn’t be able to play peekaboo with the moon
Responsible parents let their children play peekaboo with the moon
