I sit up in bed
As click clacking claws cross the floor
A rumble grumble
And shadows swirling by the door.
Under the covers
Thumping my heart beats in my head,
My eyes are closed tight
Something slithers under the bed.
I have just one chance
I grip my trick-or-treat bag tight
Throw down my candy
As I leap with all of my might.
You may laugh at me
But monsters are real I must warn
For here is my proof:
It ate all of the candy corn!
