Under The Bed

Didn’t want to look too soon
under the bed in the afternoon

Seems there were creatures stuck under my bed
some brooding intruders bigger than rats with
paws shaking and rocking my bed, and
I needed to find a flashlight or a stick

How bold these dogs or raccoons
who seem to find room to roll a bed

Man on radio
said to staff
did you feel that

This just in:

Oh good —
nothing to worry about
