The Monsters In My Closet

The monsters in my closet
Like to sleep the day away.
So when I get home from school,
I let them out to play.

When Mom calls me for supper,
I give them each a broom.
First they put my toys away,
And then they clean my room.

The Mummy hates to vacuum.
So if he starts to whine,
I kick his rear and tell him,
"Trade jobs with Frankenstein."

Wolfman used to fold my clothes.
I'll give him one more chance--
Last time he wasn't careful
And left furballs in my pants.

When my room is nice and neat,
I bring them up some food.
But Dracula wants to drink my blood--
I think that's pretty rude.

When it's time to go to bed,
I hug them all goodnight.
They jump back in my closet,
While I turn out the light.

I've taken care of monsters
For as long as I recall,
But the monsters in my closet
Are the nicest ones of all!

--Phil Bolsta

My brother always had monsters in his closet, and they would come out at night. Our room was connected by a door, and I would have to come into his room because according to him, monsters are scared of girls!!
