Evil lurks beneath the bed –
Amid rolled up socks and week-old bread.
A banana peel, now hard and brown,
But worst of all – that grinning clown.
I know monsters – they are not there.
But the chalk-faced fiend – from the fair,
To hide from its gaze, I shoved it there.
So each night, I must pass in terror,
Till Mum cleans up – I must beware.
I think the sign -KEEp OuT of My ROOm,
Is something I should get rid of –
And really soon.
