Night(ie)mares

I dreamt I wore my nightie in the supermarket,
shuffling down the aisles in slippers
searching for the cornflakes.

I dreamt I wore my nightie on the school run,
hadn't shaved my legs but luckily
I'd thought to have my hair done.

I dreamt I wore my nightie on the tv,
loads of people desperate to see me.
Glad I had the sense to wear some lippy.
