Teddy Bear’s Picnic

If you go down to the woods today

You’re sure of a big surprise.

If you go down to the woods today

You’d better go in disguise!                       

For every bear that ever there was

Will gather there for certain because

Today’s the day 

The Teddy Bears have their picnic.     

Every Teddy Bear who’s been good

Is sure of a treat today.

There’s lots of marvelous things to eat

And wonderful games to play.        

Beneath the trees where nobody sees

They’ll hide and seek as long as they please

‘Cause that’s the way the

Teddy Bears have their picnic.                     

If you go down to the woods today,

You’d better not go alone!

It’s lovely down in the woods today,

But safer to stay at home!           

Detectives Barratt and Mills, held each other and sobbed uncontrollably at the horrific and brutal sight that they’d discovered. They were the first on the scene and other police, ambulances, and forensic teams were turning up all around them. 

   They’d got the call to search Bluebell Wood at four o’clock, an hour later than when the six nursery children and one teacher should of arrived back at the school after their annual teddy bears picnic. The headmaster had failed to contact the trip teacher and so became worried and called the authorities. 

After a brief search of the area, six tiny little bodies were found thrown at random in the surrounding woods.

   Hanging in a nearby tree was the body of Mrs Harper with a child’s face where hers should have been. Her throat slit, and her whole body lacerated and her limbs cut off, but nowhere to be found as yet.

   There was a gingham blanket laid out in the middle of the woodland clearing. Plastic plates, cups, and cutlery were lying all over and all around it. Sandwiches, cakes, and crisps were scattered everywhere too, and bottles of fizzy drinks had soaked into the grass. 

 On the blanket sat in a circle were five teddy bears wearing the faces of the five other mutilated children. They were wearing the children’s hands as gloves and their feet as shoes. 

   The sixth teddy bear was never found.
