Bernie Is Impervious To All Harm

By Elton Camp

Little Bernie settled in for the night
Being bid by parents, “Sleep tight.”

The room was dark and very still
But fear made Bernie feel a chill

Some horror in the closet hiding
A monster under his bed abiding

He stayed from edge of the bed
And pulled the cover over his head

Sheet and quilts protection complete
That any fiend would easily defeat

But let an arm extend out too far
A brute growls, “There you are!”

A hairy hand would take hold
Do to Bernie cruel things untold

As long as the cover was tight
Bernie slept safely all the night
