The Shape

 

  There's this shape that follows me everywhere, down 

the street, in my house, in every room, I just can't get

away from it. It gives me the creeps, I can't make out

what it is. Is it a body? It seems to be just shadow, and

it has large ears, and I've seen its face before somewhere...

  That's right, there was this guy who used to ride around

on his bycycle when I was young, he used to have a 

shopping basket with him to do the shopping. He was 

very clever, he knew all the prices. He was middle-aged

and lived with his elderly mother.

  He used to ride up to all the kids and ask them...

- Do you wanna know a secret?

  And the kids used to go up to him close, and he'd whisper 

in their ear...

- Mickey Mouse lives in a house!

  And then he'd ride away...

  One day I went back to his house, he told me he had heaps

of Mickey Mouse toys and photos. So I went to have a look.

His mother was out.

  I went into his bedroom, he was right, he had Mickey Mouse

photos on the walls, and Mickey Mouse toys all over the floor.

He had a great collection of Mickey Mouse dolls, but they smelt

of urine, and some had their stuffing pulled out, and were full

of used condoms.

  As he watched me looking at his Mickey Mouse memorabilia

he put on a Mickey Mouse mask and came up to me...

  That's what the shape is! It's Mickey Mouse! I can't get away

from Mickey Mouse...
