Double Dog Dare

Beware of thoughts that come in the night
for they could give you an awful fright
worse than those ocurring during daylight
when the scarrier things keep out of sight

At night you may think your brain shuts down
but really it dresses up as a clown
it's performing in the middle of town
wearing nothing but a flimsy sheer gown

You may not recall but it's true I swear
it has a big red nose and bright green hair
You don't have to believe me, I don't care
but it all took place on a double dog dare

In one of HOW I met your mother episodes, it says to never listen to yourself after 2 at night, I tend to agree.

I enjoyed your poem immensely. Less serious than what I came up with. Less serious is GOOD.

Now that's scary, the thoughts of dreams dressing up like clowns. Clowns freak me out, well kind of, at anyrate:) A great write. Got my attention.
