Chicken Big, 44

Frightening Doggerel

I Have a Little Shadow: sciophobia

He had a little shadow that
Went in and out with him.
This shadow scared him when it said,
“Hello, my name is Jim.”

“But that’s my name!” the boy then cried.
“It can’t be yours as well!”
“Well, you’ll find out,” the shadow barked,
“When you arrive in hell!”

And Jim (the boy) woke up in bed,
And he commenced to scream.
His mother ran into his room
To hear about his dream.

And Jim (the boy) is so afraid
Of his own shadow now.
But—strange!—he has no shadow! Yikes?!
How could that be? Yes … how?!?!
