There Is A Monster Under My Bed

I'm sorry that I woke you
in the middle of the night.
I'm sure I heard a monster
and it's filled me full of fright.

I'm certain he is sleeping
underneath my comfy bed.
I do not want to wake him,
may I sleep with you instead?

     It is always fun to write poems about monsters.  If you had a pet monster, what fun things would you do with it?  Would you take your monster to school for Show and Tell, would you go roller skating or bowling with your monster?  What do you think would happen if your monster took swimming lessons with you?  Can you write a poem about it?  Have fun.


  1. I liked that the child didn't want to wake the monster but it was okay to wake someone else. Funny!

  2. Thank you. I don't know about you but in the dark, I'd always opt for my parents' bed over waking up that monster. My dog came along too because he was more scarred than I was.
