Lurking in the Woods

The Ragtag Daily Prompt this morning is BUGBEAR and I’ve done two versions in response.

The bugbear in the darkness
the wolf in the wood...
dark tales in the gloaming
were told for children’s good.

A way to keep adventurers
behaving like they should
in their beds at decent hours
respecting parenthood.

They stultified the curious
these bogeys that consume
snooping children in the dark,
wanderers in the gloom.

Merriam-Webster’s Word of the Day this morning is STULTIFY
