Basements Are Scary Places

Basements Are Scary Places

By Elton Camp

A dark basement with creaking stairs
To enter alone, only the foolish dares

Those who claim there’s naught to fear
Of lurking monsters have failed to hear

Because a basement’s a dim, musty place,
That’s an ogre’s natural dwelling space

That monsters can’t exist, don’t believe
Sophisticated folks don’t allow to deceive 

Take along a flashlight and without doubt
When you reach the last step, it’ll go out

From the darkness will come a moan
Creeping behind, the brute will groan

A hand with claws will grab your arm
As you cry out with the greatest alarm

Into its glowing eyes you’ll peer
Wish you were anywhere but here

Greater caution most surely was needed
This warning, you’ll wish you’d heeded
