Little Nemo cried himself to sleep again
He had begged
for his mother’s  love
but she had put him in place
for being needy

“It is the most loving thing I can do”, she explained
“You will understand one day”

Little Nemo visited dreamlands
looking for a princess
to save him with her love

But when he finally found this princess
he no longer believed
And soon enough she begged for his love
and he would put her in place
for being needy

“It is the most loving thing I can do”, he claimed.
“You will understand one day”

Little Nemo is no longer little
He sits in the green chair
cold and raging
drinking his wine

“How could this princess insinuate
that his love was not loving?
That would mean
that his mother had not loved him, too!”

And the story went sadder from there.

In the far-away land
the princess had cried herself to sleep
And in her sorrow she did not notice
the Monster on a killing spree.

And so somebody had to die
because Nemo had turned dreamlands into nightmares
and reality into delusions

The princess screamed in horror over what could no longer be undone
And then she whispered “I just love you”.

“And that is the most loving thing I can do”, she added.
“You will understand one day”
