I slept within a dream,

Being woken by a scream.

I dreamt my head fell off.


When I woke,

Tell you what I saw.

There it was laying,

On the floor.


Got out of bed,

Incased I snored.

Decided to shut it,

In a drawer


When I woke up,

Jumped out of bed.

To open the draw,

To find my head.

Was there no more.


Looked into the mirror,

This is what I saw.

There was my head,

Sitting on my legs.


I screamed within the dream

This is what I saw.

My head screaming back,

While laying on the floor.


Waking up where my day begun,

Heard the doctor say.

"He could be in this coma,

For years or days".


That's when I woke,

Feeling refreshed.

As never before,

Glancing down.

That's where I found,

My glasses on the floor.

Trouble is they were,

Sitting on my head.
