asleep in the cellar

i brought something
home today
well, it followed me most of the way
but it’s so small
and underfed
and it can sleep with me in bed
it won’t bother
her too much
it doesn’t talk, i think it’s dutch
momma hasn’t
seen it yet
i mean to show her but i forget
i’m really truly
going to tell her
that we have a guest asleep in the cellar.
