Best of friends

Ted’ is sat on the bed,
I think
there must be straw in his head
and he might have cloth ears too

anyway
he’s watching me with his
glass marble eyes
I wait, but he’s got nothing
to say,

at times like these times
everyone needs a Ted’,
someone who’ll listen and
pass no remarks on what’s
being said.

Teddy is even older than me
he must be wiser too.
