Dreams of the Absurd

Now it's common to dream about falling
From far in the sky high above
But to land in a lion's mouth opening
Why couldn't I fly like a dove?

Now appearing at work in the nude
In reality that would cause a strike
I'm afraid I'm the one who'd get sued
Wake up before you cause great fright

And then comes bizarre eroticism
With a person I never liked
My dreams, an out of control organism
Are my thoughts just wacko and psyched?

One night I was trapped in a church
With my wife who is not a bimbo
Bullets were fired, many fired back
By my wife, a female Rambo

So your dreams can be fun and exciting
While mine tend to be so absurd
As sun sets and sky turns to nighting
I hope no one gives me the bird
