Once upon a stomy night,
I woke up in a sudden fright.
T'was then I thought I heard a sound,
a creature groaning from the ground.
The creature then revealed itself,
its body larger than myself.
Fear then travelled down my spine,
and MADNESS almost got my mind!
I saw its eyes as red as coal,
staring and glaring into my soul!
Its teeth were sharp so were its claws,
I surely wised I held a cross!
The creature then move forward,
as I was staggering sideward
It groaned some more and aimed its claws
---- and then my world came to a pause.
T'was then that sense came back to me,
and I recalled what momma said vividly.
I laughed at the creature and appealed,
"Mr. Creature, you're NOT real!"
The creature's face expressed dismay,
as it screamed in disarray.
The creature went back in my mind,
and I went back to sleep, and left the night behind.
