Oh say can you hear the footsteps in flight?
How quickly they run across hallway then down stairs
Bare feet hit the tile--
They're coming towards me!
I fake a deep sleep but he stands there and pokes me.
There were monsters/bad guys/scary beasts in the night
He stands there panting, heart pounding in fright.
Oh fine I'll roll over and let you in bed
I pull the boy in and feel his butt's wet.
Question for the day: Did the dream scare the piss out of the child, or did the wet bed evoke the nightmare?
I'll let you ponder that while I throw in a load of wash.
