Nineteenth poem

Let’s go exploring
Let’s run away
Into the night
And into the day
I’m asking, imploring
Just come out to play
And if it’s alright
I’d like you to stay
Let’s fly away, soaring
Get out of our way
And by our own might
Claim freedom today
But I’m dreaming, I’m snoring
I’m foolish, but hey,
I’ll give my best fight
No cost I won’t pay
To escape all that’s boring
And get out of the grey
Finding the light
Amidst disarray

*Opening line from The Complete Calvin and Hobbes – Book 3, Bill Watterson
