The Monster Under the Bed

..

He’s well fed,
what with all the cookie crumbs
and occasional pieces
of cheese. But please,
don’t wake him too soon. He’s
exceedingly grumpy
until at least
noon. And

whatever you do,
don’t sing. When given
just the ghost
of a chance,
he’ll bring his furry
self out here
and ask you
to
dance.
