I am unable to move, I’m shaking inside.
I just can’t take my eyes off him in case he’ll hide.
He stands motionless, staring at me evilly.
I’ve got to do something. It’s either him or me.
I go to fetch my special long-handled tool
but I get the feeling that he’s trying to fool
me as when I return he is missing, but where?
Is he hiding behind the curtains or my chair?
Will he come out again when I am fast asleep?
Or will he wait until tomorrow and then creep
stealthily out from his secret dark hiding place?
Will I wake up to feel something tickling my face?
