The Monster

 It came from beneath the swamp
 to look for the one he lost
 it went around the marsh to romp
 even though it was a deadly cost

 The woman in the house
 with her husband on the loose
 her boyfriend silent as a mouse
 was getting the booze

 and the thing came through the door
 confused, and looking for his wife
 when he saw her new boyfriend roar
 he nearly took away his life

 the wife, happy to reunite
 the husband, happy she's alive
 and she took one look at him in the light
 and struck him with a knife
