Beware!


Beware!


The light switch clicks off,
You swallow in dread.
With covers pulled tight,
And arms around Ted.

“There’s nothing to fear,”
(So your mum and dad said).
But they hide in your wardrobe,
And under your bed.

(Your friends may laugh),
“It’s all in your head!”
But you know the truth…
And so do the dead!

– Crispian Thurlborn, “Beware!” (2015)

from the novella, “A Bump in the Night”
