Today’s prompt: “lullaby.”
LULLABY FOR THE OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE
Hush little brain on its hamster wheel,
If the oven’s still on, it’s no big deal.
The doors are locked, the cupboards shut tight
Against worry monsters of the night.
Think of your shoes lined up so tidy;
Don’t let thoughts of bacteria wake your anxiety.
The angel of Lysol will grant protection,
So rest in the cradle of your own perfection.
