Monsters under the Bed

By Brita Kihle


They only come out at night,

Taking your clothes and

Strewing them everywhere;

All over the place so that

Your parents begin to grow upset.

They tickle your feet and cause

You to get the shivers in the night.

Make you feel like you’re falling just

As you’re about to drift to sleep.

They hide as soon as the sun starts

To peek its rays on the horizon,

Never to be seen by anyone or anything.

They only come out at night.
