Only a cup of coffee
it doesn't drown the sound
from the closed door
fist banging
feet kicking
mummie mummie
where are you
crying with blue boots on
Go to sleep Bear
Mummie is on coffee break
Shhh shhh quiet as a mouse
Mummie is
pretending not to hear
mummie mummie no no
where are you
shhhh Bear go to sleep
whispers Mummie where
Bear can't hear
A fist pounding
A falling thump
Sounds of fingers being sucked
Bear is on the floor
just behind the door
Shhh sleep Bear, sleep
