The Monster Next Door

There’s a monster next door!

She’s slimy and green and hairy allover!
She’s huge and thorny and loud!
She eats hands and arms and feet, they say.

There’s a monster next door!

She knocked on my door.
She asked for some sugar.
Two of her ten beady eyes looked into mine.
At that moment, I fainted.

There’s a monster next door!

I woke up in a room with… fake webs?
Little toy spiders?
Pumpkin carvings?
I heard the monster chew and chew.
Was she eating? ...wait, they were not real feet or hands or arms!
Oh! I forgot its Halloween! She gave me some candy.
How kind! Wait……
The monster is kind? Ahhhhh!

There’s a kind monster next door!

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
