Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

A little lie might work just right!

It was late last night

And all sane had slept!

I must sleep too,

To my bed I crept!

‘Why’d you bang at my door?’

Suddenly she appears.

‘oh why would I bang?’

Little sister, my dear!

‘Look, don’t lie’, she says sternly.

‘Look why would I?’, I replied casually!

‘Yeah right’, she’d snap.

And lean towards her bed,

But she won’t sleep.

Until she’s clear in her head.

So I plan to lie and turn to tell her that,

‘It could be mother who entered’, I tell her flat.

‘Oh could it be?’, she exclaims relaxed.

And sleeps peacefully while I remain perplexed!
