Bump - Poem by Spike Milligan

Things that go 'bump' in the night
Should not really give one a fright.
It's the hole in each ear
That lets in the fear,
That, and the absence of light!

    Its a simple but effective poem. It demonstrates a limerick which in this case is about a person being frightened in the night. (Report) Reply
