Nite-Nite, Children

Ain’t no monsters under my bed
None in the closet
There is no reason to be afraid
Not a thing to really cause it

Then why am I pulling up the sheets
Hiding up under my blanket?
Refusing to hang a leg down low
Where a rat might want to munch it?

It’s dark in here; much too dim
To see the creeping shadow
Then I hear the sounds of scritchy-scratch
As it scurries hunched and down-low

I got both eyes glued shut tight
My fists knot up the cover
Teeth are grit as I hear it spit
Then I feel a something hover

The bed shakes -- I get the quakes
I’m touchy as a blister
Than a snort identifies the sound
It’s my mean little sister

A sister might be more frightening than cannibals.

Brothers are far more frightening than sisters are.

I have 3 little sisters. I would have traded any one of them in for a monster in my closet.

This evening I sat alone in the dark at my computer. Lo and behold I had received an entry at my old blog site. Who was the commentor? was he a strange monster lurking in my cyber desk top. The mouse quivered and then pounced on the name of the blogger.
Oh what a relief, what a delight to find twas not a ghostly creature of the night at all. It was you,
a friend.
I have moved and now reside at
Enter there if you dare

Little sisters, oh what a topic. Ive raised mine for quite some time, and let me tell you, sometimes she can make my skin crawl. (yet somehow I love her)

And a big Booga-Booga to Glen. It took several agencies, many bribes and lots of undisclosed sources to track you down, too. I recall naps being a huge priority, after all the efforts spent.
