Theres A Monster In My Bedroom Mummy.. Poem by David Darbyshire

Theres A Monster In My Bedroom Mummy..

Rating: 3.1

Theres a monster in my bedroom mummy,
with horrid big red eyes,
and daddy dont believe me,
he says im telling lies,
I know you've never seen him,
he hides when you come in,
but all my friends have seen him,
and they're all scared off him.

' go to sleep now darling,
you'll see monsters if you peep,
I'll be back up in a minute
to see if you're asleep'
as mummy reached the landing,
she heard a mighty roar,
her daughters mutilated body,
lay bleeding on the floor...

by Maria aged 13...A good friend of mine

AAGGGHHH! ! What a shocker! Right up until the last few lines, I was thinking...oh...what a nice children's poem. Not! It has great shock value though.

Devishly dark twist at the end of the poem, I like the way it starts of as a possible Humorous childs poem, before throwing you into a Dark surreal image of a murdered girl. There is also something about 'peter cried wolf' going on here. send my compliments to Maria Vincent
