Darkness, darkness surrounded me
It was wet, damp and smelt of the sea
I was alone, no one to talk to, I sat and began to cry
Little did I know the Night Unicorn was in the sky.
He zoomed at lightning speed
So fast the air tugged out the weeds
He came to me so fast I couldn't spare another tear
And I was so glad he was here.
I was so happy I jumped on his back
His energy didn't lack
We flew above a mountain peak
Then I heard a sudden creak.
We fell from the sky
Suddenly he couldn't fly
And to our surprise
One million cackling clowns began to rise.
My unicorn, determined to save the day
Blasted every single one away
I stared at him for a while
Then my frown turned into a smile.
My friend the Night Unicorn
I will never forget his scent of popcorn
He said farewell and flew
Then galloped into the night and carried on anew.
