I rode a rainbow unicorn

I rode a rainbow unicorn.

We sailed across the sky.

(I’d fed him lots of Skittles,

since they always make him fly.)

We took off like a comet

on a long and graceful flight.

And everywhere the people stopped

and marveled at the sight.

His path was bright and colorful.

It sparkled, shimmered, shined,

as he arced across the heavens

shooting rainbows from behind.
