The Who-Who Man



During the day, the wooded area is friendly

          A hut burrowed in the shrub, shelter from the heat,

          A place for the child to laugh and play.


After nightfall

          A faceless man emerges from the wood.

          Without warning

          He is tall and moves quickly,

His arms and legs




He announces himself to the child

                    who who who who

Invades her subconscious

                    who who who who

Invades her dreams.


"Daddy, daddy, help me, daddy 

save me from the who-who man."




May 1992
