Song of the Bed by James Broughton

Song of the Bed

O everything important in life

occurs upon a bed.

It’s where you cry when you are born

and where you lie when dead.

You spend a third of your life in bed

with sickness, sex and sleeping.

You can have a good laugh with your love in bed

though it’s also used for weeping.

In a bed the most fantastic things

are hoped for and conceived.

It’s where you dream, it’s where you scheme,

and where you are deceived.

It’s where on earth you come to birth

and most of childhood spend

It’s where you come and where you don’t

and where you come to an end.
