When You Fall Asleep in the Middle of a Book...
An inquiry into incomplete bedtime stories.
The cop doesn’t catch the crook.
The duckling still has an ugly look.
The caterpillar doesn’t turn into a butterfly.
The jerk never learns to be a better guy.
The ship stays lost at sea.
No one uncovers the conspiracy.
The frog is still a frog,
Sitting lonely on a log.
And the girl keeps looking for her missing dog.
The harvest is unreaped
As the farmer’s fast asleep.
Luke never finds the girl in the hologram.
No one tries green eggs and ham.
The bully keeps harassing the shy kid.
No one knows what the butler did.
All his wooing is for naught.
The final battle is not fought.
The sacrifice is not made.
The village is not saved.
Max remains misbehaved.
And the lost girl doesn’t find her way
They all wait through the day and into the night for you to guide them to the end, and then turn out the light.
