Bedtime

Tell me a riddle
a vexatious poser
a beginning, a middle
an eye-opening closer.

Tell me a joke
regale me in laughter
a setup to evoke
the groan that comes after

Tell me a story
a tale of swashbuckles
heroes and glory
ghosts and white knuckles

Tell me of lovers
of passions that run deep
then tuck in my covers
and sing me to sleep
