The Thing That Little John Did Fear

The thing that little John did fear
Mama said was as wild as a bear

The thing that formed young John’s fears
“You couldn’t achieve it” said her peers

The thing that studious John did fear
His teachers really didn’t care

The thing that fed ambitious John’s fears
Grew on and on through the years

The thing that caused John’s fears
Caused his lovely wife pain and tears

The thing that Mr. John did fear
He grew up to know wasn’t there
