Here's a little treat for your reading pleasure. Several years ago I entered a "Dr. Suess-style" writing contest and won first place with the following poem (based on Dr. Suess' THERE'S A WOCKET IN MY POCKET):
A Spider in the Cider
© 2003 Rebecca J. Gomez
Have you ever had the notion there’s a potion in your lotion?
Or a mummy playing rummy at a table in the stable?
When something hovers over the covers
Or there’s a howler in the shower
Do you shrink when you think of the midnight hour?
Today I thought for sure there was a spider in the cider
And a bat under my hat
And a snake under the rake
There is a slug inside my jug
And a snail in the mail
And the ghost eating my toast really makes me want to wail
I like the frog under the log
And the witch out in the ditch
But the ants in my pants always make me squirm and itch
Things that creep where I sleep I do not like to have around
But the crawlers are the worst because they never make a sound
