Last night as I lay
In my bed for some sleep,
I felt something poke me
From under my sheets.

There’s something alive,
I thought in my head --
There’s something that’s living
Under my bed.

I tried to be quiet,
I tried to be still,
Each time that I moved
It would give me a chill.

So I jumped from my bed
Ran straight down the hall,
But my parents were sleeping,
“The nerve of it all!”

My father was snoring,
My mom she was too,
Now I needed help here
So this wouldn’t do.

I tugged on my father
Till he opened one eye.
He saw me and smiled,
Then quietly said, “Hi”

I tugged him again,
I said, “Dad come real quick.
It’s under my bed
And it has a big stick!”

“Honey,” he said,
As he sat up in bed
“Couldn’t this wait till tomorrow?
In the morning, instead.”

“Dad, I’m afraid
If you don’t come right now
Your ONLY sweet daughter
Will vanish somehow!”

Just then my mom
Smiled as she said,
“Your daddy is brave;
He’ll check under your bed.”

So he took hold of my hand
As we walked down the hall,
My dad is real brave --
He’s the best of them all.

When we got to my room,
He turned on the light.
“We’ll take care of this monster --
We will catch him tonight!”

He got down on the floor
Without making a sound
Looked under the bed
You’ll never guess what we found.

Five dusty socks
Rolled up in a ball,
Four teddy bears
Wow! That wasn’t all.

Two yellow blankets,
Now how’d they get there?
Then, oh my gosh
Not, my pink underwear!

Four Barbie’s and Ken’s,
A monopoly game,
Clue and Parcheesi
And six candy canes.

A Frisbee, a racket,
My pink dress that I lost,
My dollhouse and art set,
A game of ring toss.

He pulled and he pried,
The stuff covered my floor,
Then he lay on his stomach --
Could there be any more?

Barney and Elmo,
A talk-a-lot Kate,
She was dusty and dirty
With a smile on her face.

So those were the voices
I heard late at night --
I thought I was dreaming,
It gave me a fright.

The pile on my floor
Was at least ten feet tall,
It spilled from my bedroom
Then straight down the hall.

Finally, my father
Gave a pull real quick
And from under the bed
Came my lost pogo stick.

Then he squirmed and he wiggled,
The bed started to buck,
He said, “Dear get your mother,
I think that I’m stuck.”

So I went to get mom
As we each grabbed a foot
We pulled and we tugged
While my whole bedroom shook.

He finally broke free
As we all screamed for joy,
Each of us buried
Under ten feet of toys.

My father just smiled,
He wasn’t upset --
“Tomorrow , my sweet daughter,
We’ll clean up this big mess.”

He said, “There’s not a monster
Under your bed.
I’m afraid one couldn’t fit there
Without bumping his head.”

So they tucked me back in
Then turned out the light,
Went back to their room
As we all said goodnight.

But just as I started
To fall back to sleep,
A noise from my closet
Put me back on my feet….

Peace Abel

You been peeking under my bed? Wow! This is how it used to be when I was young - my mom would get SO annoyed. Now under the bed is clean, but now can't fit under it - good thing, maybe? Enjoyed the chuckles this morning, thank you, God bless! Well done.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla. *still smiling*
