Beware of the Thing



Everyone points their fingers at 
Me
When there's no culprit to find
Me
When there's no excuse to rig
Me  
When there's no reason to tarry behind 
Me
Cleaning up the mess & cobwebs
Me
Wiping away woes & magical spells gone kaput 
Me
Scaring away house guests nobody wants
Me
Spooking postmen & little girls selling cookies
Me
Witch tales, moon-struck poems, who will listen 
Me
If you need somebody to pat your shoulders
Me
Or write a sweet letter to your Lady Love 
Me
Or rescue you out of box or clutches of homicidal maniac  
(Not me)
Tap & I'll climb out, parts incomplete, but family to  
You

  3. The Thing .... wish I had one. I always liked his level of service on the Addams family. It's definitely male there, though--seems more female in your house.
