Monster In A Box (Children) - Poem by C.J. Heck

There's a monster in my house!
It came in a great big box.
Mommy says it isn't so,
but something ate my socks.

I used to have a full sock drawer,
with red ones and some blue.
I even had some white ones,
'cause I wear white socks, too.

There's a monster in my house!
It came in a great big box
and I must make it angry
or it wouldn't eat my socks.

It lives around here, somewhere.
(whisper) Shhhh! I hope it's not around!
'Cause if you ever wake it up,
it makes such awful sounds.

Most times, it says, 'Yum-Yum! Yum-Yum! '
Sometimes, it just goes 'swish'.
But, I know it eats my socks up
without a spoon or dish.

Mom says they're underneath the bed
or spread around the floor.
(well the monster musta' burped 'em there
when she opened up the door) .

There's a monster in my house!
It came in a great big box!
Mom says it's just the washer...
but it's a monster that eats my socks!

    There must be more that one monster, because I have a drawer of mis'matched monster eaten (holes and all) socks. Loved this one and it's going straight to the grandchildren. Linda (Report) Reply

    Never mind children loving it, I certainly do, it puts me in mind of my 9 moth old pup.

    Everthing about this is wonderful; the structure', the humour and a timeless theme that says that there are always things disrupting our lifes, even if it is our own ability to remember things.

    Lots of love
