Evensong

Finish dinner
Clear the table
Knit with TV
Play with LEGO.

Time to slow it down, boy.
Time to let it rest.
Time to settle down now.
Time to get some rest.

Pick up the LEGO
Go and take a bath
"Wait, my nose is bleeding!"
There goes my night, alas.

Time to slow it down, boy.
Time to let it rest.
Time to settle down now.
Time to get some rest.

Stop playing with the cat now
It's time to take that bath
"No, my nose, it bleeds again
And can I have a snack?"

Time to slow it down, boy.
Time to let it rest.
Time to settle down now.
Time to get some rest.

Blood and hunger both are quenched
Now time to take that bath
It's past bedtime already
No more excuses in your path!

Time to slow it down, boy.
Time to let it rest.
Time to settle down now.
Time to get some rest.

The bath is warm,
The bed is cozy,
Time to sleep is here at last…

But will it ever come to pass?
