Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

Would scream if it could.

If I were the pillow
you sleep on each night
I’d hide under the bed
and out of your sight.
You go to bed smiling,
a glint in your eye,
if that pillow could talk
it surely would cry.
You could gently fluff it
and make it fatter
but you choose to pound it,
making it flatter.
If you have a bad day
and things don’t go right,
you talk to that pillow
about half the night.
If someone makes you mad,
the pillow you fight,
pounding out its feathers,
the room is a sight.
Tonight you lost at cards,
when you played Nillo
I’d take a real long trip,
if I were a pillow.

Note: Nillo is a variation on the card game of 500
