Poem of the Day

No such thing

 

No such thing as monsters

I’m absolutely sure

As is Mrs Werewolf

Who rents the house next door

 

No such thing as monsters

A scientific fact

I have it writ in blood

Sincerely signed Count Drac

 

No such thing as monsters

My sources can’t be wrong

I heard it from a friend

Of a friend of King Kong

 

No such thing as monsters

The neighbours all agree

Dr Jeckle, Mr Hyde,

The Frankensteins and me

 

No such thing as monsters

And really I should know

Mummy unwrapped herself

Just now to tell me so!
