Did I | The Bogieman is in

Did I

There was I
Alone in the shower
The time was approaching
The midnight hour
I was dreaming
Of a glass of hot milk
But danger was hanging
On a thin strand of silk
Taking the soap
I lathered my face
The lateness of the hour
Setting the pace
I raised my face to the water
Washing soap from my eyes
When I looked up
I got a surprise
Hanging above me
And wiggling its feet
Was the biggest spider
You could ever meet
I opened my mouth
To scream from within
As I took a breath
The spider dropped in
I must have fainted
From such a scare
And when I awoke
The spider wasn’t there
From then until now
In my mind I still wallow
Did I spit it out
Or, did I swallow
