Scared

Scared

I’m scared of the octopus that lives in the sea
There’s a shark out there on a wave you can’t see
How do you know there isn’t a whale?

It’s too deep to float
That salt’s too old
I’ve read you can drown in a bath.

I’m afraid of tsunamis
Remember Santorini
She was meant to be safe.

Jellyfish sting and they’re Portuguese
I must be alergic, I’ll die of shock
It’s time to run for my life.
