Day 3 – A scary poem

I’m not scared of spiders – oh no I’m not!
In fact I think I like them quite a lot.
Arachnophobia? No, no, not me! 
Spiders can run around my house quite free…..
…..can’t they? 

Small spaces, I can fit in them I’m sure
and I will breathe in them for ever more.
Claustrophobia? I have not got it.
In my pothole there’ll be an air pocket….
…..won’t there?

I’m not scared of heights, I’ll stand very tall
I look from the bannister down the hall.
Vertigo doesn’t bother me at all
I’ll climb up the ladder and I won’t fall……
….will I?

I don’t believe in ghosts, don’t be silly
they can rattle their chains willy nilly.
Footsteps in the loft? Could be mice at play.
I’ll ignore them until they go away……
…..they will go away…… won’t they?
