Sleep Tight Alfa

It is night in the forest
and all there are glad,
that the Alfa is back
safe on her pad.

The black tank is empty
the gray's good-smelling.
The Alfa's available
for forest driveway dwelling.

The traps are all set
in the coach and the bays,
waiting to catch
any creature who strays.

Peanut butter is smeared
for the mice and rat,
be they soft and small
or mean and fat.

Sleep tight big Alfa
and have a good dream,
of friends you have met
near mountain and stream.

We'll go out again soon
and you'll have your day,
to carry your family
far far away --
