Poem: The Squeak

There’s a squeaking in the corner

Of a bedroom we don’t use

It could be caused by lots of things

I don’t know which to choose.


I wondered if it could be ghosts

Or maybe even bats

And then I thought of other things

Of mice, or even rats.


The squeaking could be floorboards

Moving as they’re pressed

I thought that maybe someone

Had gone in there to get dressed.


I’d heard it from the room beneath

And from the room next door,

I wondered if it might have come

From underneath the floor.


I thought perhaps a draught was

Causing something there to squeak

But when I had a closer look

I couldn’t find a creak.


I searched but still I couldn’t find

The reason for that sound

But I still can’t help the feeling

That there’s something still around!
