“Chirp–Chirp”

I think I hear a cricket hiding somewhere in my room.


“Chirp– chirp” Yes; over by the doorway or perhaps behind the broom.


“Chirp–chirp” “You have good luck”, people say, “If a cricket comes to stay”.


“Chirp–chirp” No... he isn’t here I guess. Unless... yes; he’s over there.


“Chirp–chirp” That sneaky little cricket is somewhere beneath my chair.


“Chirp–chirp” I’ll move the chair. Mercy me! He’s not where he seems to be.


“Chirp–Chirp” Where is he? For goodness sakes; now the sound comes from the drapes.


“Chirp–chirp” No; it’s coming from the lamp. I can’t find that little scamp.


“Chirp–chirp” Oh my aching little head. Now the noise is near my bed.


“Chirp–chirp” From the ceiling, from the floor, near the window then the door.


“Chirp–chirp” I’m about to go insane; if I hear that noise again.


” p r i h c – p r i h “C

First a whisper, now a roar. I can’t stand it any more.


” p r i h c – “C h i r p Take the room you noisy bug!

I’ll sleep on the bathroom rug!


“Chirp–chirp”
