Bedtime Monsters

Edward looked under the bed 
and sighed.
'Under there is where a 
monster could hide'. He looked 
in the wardrobe and shook his 
head, 'this is worse than under 
the bed!' 
He looked in the toy chest and 
held back the tears 'a monster 
could hide in here for years!'
He looked in the toy cupboard 
and let out a growl. 'There's 
plenty of room for a monster 
to prowl!'
He heard feet on the stairs 
and the door opened wide, he 
needed somewhere quick to 
hide!
Mummys are good at keeping 
monster away, so he jumped 
in the toy chest and decided to 
stay.
Edward the monster preferred 
under the bed, but tonight 
he'd sleep in the toy chest 
instead.

    Brings back memories of when my brother and I would race to bed. The last one had to go turn off the light. So scary back then. My brother kept losing so carried a flashlight to bed... Of course, it also allowed him to read under the covers... later.

    I like this humorous tale of monsters. mine was an alligator (really the shadow of a tree branch) that I was sure was going to eat me.

    Shelly, this poem is really cute. I hope there's no monster hiding under my bed. They give me the willies. Your last name is the same as my maiden name. My parents are Dorcas and David Foreman.I was born in Toronto, Canada
