'It's Behind You' | 30-Jun-05

"I don't wamt to scare you
but just behind you
is a.....

No! Don't look!
Just act calmly
As if it wasn't there....

Oh, I see, it doesn't, never mind
you'd better leave just in case
I expect you'll escape
if you don't look round.

Oh what a shame!
I thought you'd make it
to the door. Hard luck.
I still think it means no harm
I expect it eats all its friends."

The whole poem is as follows

It?s behind you
By David Harmer

I don?t want to scare you
But just behind you
Is a ?

No! don?t look!
Just act calmly
As if it wasn?t there.

Like I said
Can you hear me if I whisper?
Just behind you
Is a ?

Just keep on reading
Don?t turn round, believe me
It isn?t worth it.

If you could see
What I can see standing there
You?d understand.

It?s probably one
Of the harmless sort
Although with that mouth
Not to mention the teeth
And all that blood
Dripping down its chin
I wouldn?t like to say

Oh Listen
It?s trying to speak
I think it wants to be friends

Oh I see it doesn?t, never mind
You?d better leave just in case
I expect you?ll escape
If you don?t look round

Oh what a shame!
I thought you?d make it
To the door. Hard luck
I expect it bites all its friends
