Poem: Don’t Talk To Strangers.(extract from Bone Soup)

.

don’t talk to strangers

.

please take a sweetie little girl

would you like to see a kitten

do you know the way to maudlin street

would you let me tie your mitten

.

come here young man

i’m slightly deaf

come closer to the car

don’t be afraid

i know your mum

get in it is not far

.

it’s sensible to be on guard

with everyone you meet

it is not rude to run away

from people in the street

.

though people seem quite human

from the outside looking in

you cannot see the monsters lurking

underneath the skin

.
