Goodnight Little Houseplant

Goodnight Little Houseplant

Goodnight little houseplant asleep on the sill 
I’ll pull the shades so you don’t catch a chill 
And tomorrow in the morning don’t be breakfast for two 
We’ll have ham and eggs for me and nitrogen for you 
Goodnight little houseplant tucked in your clay pot 
Maske sure you don’t catch Huntington’s Rot 
Remember little houseplant stay away from them bees 
I’ve heard they may carry a social disease 
Goodnight little houseplant goodnight 
Here’s your glass of water should I leave on the light 
Tomorrow we’ll talk of the things that we did 
I love you little house plant who needs women and kids

by Shel Silverstein
