Poem: Name your fears

A child wearing a crash helmet, playing with sunglasses

By Bernadette Rice

Jamie Stammers rarely
it’s his name
Lucy Stutter’s fluent
much the same
Jennie Bloks her rivals
playing chess
David Sticks to Jenga 
it's less stress
Ollie Bumps his head
when trying to kiss
Alice Wobbles over
"You need this!"
Everybody Stumbles
now and then
Name your fears and you
can conquer them.
Picture: Alice Wobbles (not her real name, says Bernadette. But all other surnames are genuine).
