I know that's Uncle Draymond's shadow
in the hallway corner
I've seen him
4 times already this week.
It's him I'm sure
'cause he useta loveto stand there
when he'd first come in the house
and talk to Ma.
I only see him when it's night time
but he doesn't bother me
when I peek out my bedroom door
guess he misses it here
like we miss him
nobody to ride wit
nowhere to go
maybe he's just checking on us.
But I do hear bumps under the bed
and sometimes I go to Ma's room
'cause I get scared
and the other morning
I seen some big ole footprint marks
I believe it's that monster from
'Are You Afraid of the Dark'
I'ma do like Grandma
get some horse shoes
and he won't be around no more.
