U is for… Under the bed :)

I have many memories of  hiding under the bed, and being left there 😛


under the bed


‘Here I come ready or not

Keep your place or you’ll be caught’

I hear her footsteps up the stairs

After she counts to ten

Then I hear her go back down again

I hear the slam of the front door

I wait and wait and wait some more

I hold my nose, try not to sneeze

Someone come and find me please

I find an odd sock, not too clean

Don’t know whose it might have been

A hair clip and balls of fluff

I think I’ve waited long enough

An hour passed, no one came

They got bored playing this game

Decided to go out to play

Didn’t even come up to say

‘I’m not playing anymore’

Just left me lying on the floor

An hour later Mam’s in a heap

I’m under the bed fast asleep

She can’t find me anywhere

My sisters went out and left me there   😛
