Monsters –they lurk everywhere
Under your bed or in your hair
All day long they try to scare
They really are your worst nightmare.
Goblins give you such a fright
Your hear them grumble through the night
They really are a gruesome sight
Their yellow teeth glint in the light.
Witches with their pointy hats
Fly on broomsticks with their cats
They bubble potions made from bats
And pelt you with the tails of rats.
Pixies with their pointy feet
Tug at the corners of your sheets
They whine and moan and whinge and bleat
They trick and steal and lie and cheat.
A ghost appears with chilling grin
He comes to spook his next of kin
He flaps the curtains, kicks the bin
And really makes a dreadful din.
A zombie crawling on the floor!
Now how did he get in the door?
His eyes are black, his skin is raw
There surely can’t be anymore?!
But wait! What’s this With snarling face?
A werewolf comes to take its place
Its hygiene is a true disgrace
It really takes up too much space!!!
More pour into every inch
They snatch and bite and drool and pinch
You do not dare to even flinch
And..oh my gosh is that the grinch?!
They all crowd round about your bed
Clawing and scratching at your head
And your tummy fills with dread
For they’re all wanting to be fed.
But worse is yet to come, Beware!
For what’s that coming up the stairs?
With bleary eyes and fuzzy hair?
You really better take great care.
The door opens, a floorboard creaks
You see whose there and dare not speak
She’s grumpy and it’s you she seeks…
Yes, it’s your mum, NOW GO TO SLEEP!!!!
