Famous Poems in Bed No. 4: A Dream Deferred in Bed

Based on "A Dream Deferred" by Langston Hughes

by Lyle Carlyle

WHAT happens to a dream deferred, in bed?

Does it dry up
like a raisin in the sun in bed?
Or fester like a sore--
And then run in bed?
Does it stink like rotten meat in bed?
Or crust and sugar over--
like a syrupy sweet in bed?

Maybe it just sags in bed
like a heavy load.

Or does it explode -- in bed?
