Fearful Trifextra


So fearful of Soap Sally!

Dad says she comes in the night

to bump the daylights out of me.

Looking back, is plain to see

frightening things are ‘scary’

when told they be.

        Nothing’s more delightful than rambling on deliberating rambling deliberations!

    I enjoyed this. I’d never heard of “Soap Sally”, so of course I had to google it. Thanks for a new scary story!

      Your welcome. I never knew she was a ‘legitimate’ scary figure. Thought it was something Dad made up to scare us,lol. Take another look at my next poem on my site.
      I have a “new” illustrator for my poems! Am so excited!

      The REASON you have never heard of ‘Soap Sally’ is that you are too young and she is too old,

    I hadn’t heard of Soap Sally, so I Googled it, too. So true that things are scary when we’re told they are- especially as kids!

    You speak the truth in poetic form!
    I never heard of Soap Sally either, and I am nowhere near as young as Draug!
