Teddy

TEDDY
Teddy is my friend
He hugged me when mummy died
And wouldn’t eat, when I wouldn’t
I cried for days, he did too
The next door kid ripped his leg
And I bit her, hard on the neck
Her mummy called and daddy scolded
I and teddy
He smiled and I sew his leg back on
And made him a crutch
And he still hugs me
When I cry for mummy.
