Monster in My Closet


C.R. Sweeney

What's that in the closet?

Whatever shall I do?

There's a monster in my closet

Oh, how I wish my mother knew


Mother sent me on to bed

And told me to go to sleep

I pulled the covers up o'er my head

But I just had to take a peek


There he was, all large and hairy

With giant glowing eyes

Grownups say there are no monsters

Why tell kids such big lies?


In the darkness of my room

I could still see the hideous sight

Oh how I wish Mother would come

Open the door and switch on the light


"Mother!" I managed to cry out loud

Her footsteps grew louder as she neared

The door swung open, the light turned on

And the monster disappeared!
