The Shutting off of the Light

Regina Puckett


Stuffed animals gathered all around

A beloved teddy bear, puppy and clown

Quietly mocking the innocence of childhood

Silent watchers of evil destroying good

Seeing tears filling a dirty princess pillowcase

Witnesses of a childhood totally erased

A room painted in pink and trimmed in white

Three onlookers to the shutting off of the light
