Five minutes, five minutes more, please! 
Let me stay five minutes more! 
Can’t I just finish the castle 
I’m building here on the floor? 
Can’t I just finish the story 
I’m reading here in my book? 
Can’t I just finish this bead-chain — 
It almost is finished, look! 
Can’t I just finish this game, please? 
When a game’s once begun 
It’s a pity never to find out 
Whether you’ve lost or won. 
Can’t I just stay five minutes? 
Well, can’t I just stay just four? 
Three minutes, then? two minutes? 
Can’t I stay one minute more?
~Bedtime Poem by Eleanor Farjeon
