The Night Before Fair Week

'Twas the night before Fair Week and all through the house
Not a person was sleeping not even the mouse.

The cousins from Boston had flown in to stay ---
Here on the farm 'til a week from Monday.

The Showmanship clothes were hung up with care,
So Boy Wonder'd look sharp, when he's at the fair.

The Little Prince picked up on all of the tension
As for the Munchkin? She demanded attention.

Boy Wonder searched for his Royal Court cap,
While Mama and the Geek dreamed of taking a nap.

Earlier on the lawn, there'd been such a clatter
Loading up those chickens had been quite the matter.

Away to the fairgrounds they'd driven real fast.
Bird check-in a three and it was already half past.

The birds in their cages, all watered and fed.
"Everyone back in the car" Mama Hen said.

A quick head count taken and homeward they flew.
'Cuz back at the house, there was still more to do

There were pictures to mount and speeches to write.
They all knew this was gonna be a long night.

Long after sunset, the projects were done.
Everyone yawned as the big clock struck one.

Mama Hen did some laundry, the Geek sipped some Dew
He glanced at his watch and said, "How'd it get to be 2?"

Up the stairs they all headed and crawled into bed.
This was just the beginning of Fair Week ahead!

let the fun begin
