The Monster Under the Bed

 

The Monster Under the Bed

 

By Elton Camp

 

That it’s under her bed, Suzy can’t prove

However, she’s sure she’s heard it move

 

And the rasping sound it does make

Causes her, with great fear to shake

 

Suzy pulls the cover over her head

It can’t grab her from under the bed

 

Whenever she does cry and scream

Her parents say that it’s only a dream

 

Under the bed they both will peer

Assure Suzy there’s naught to fear

 

“But we will leave the light turned on.

You won’t be afraid when we’re gone.”

 

But the shining lamp doesn’t help

She sees its hands and gives a yelp

 

When, exhausted, she falls asleep

Horrid dreams come when it’s deep

 

The next night, it will be the same

A terrible dread she cannot name

 

When Suzy has children of her own,

Occasionally, a monster may moan

 

An adult, she knows it isn’t true

Yet, cover her head, she’ll still do
