A Can Full of Monsters


A Can Full of Monsters

 

I collect monsters,

Monsters of every kind.

I have one with a bump and a hump,

And one with a spikey spine.

 

One that has long claws of steel,

And one that has three eyes,

And even one that has bad breath,

And one that whines and cries.

 

I feed them and I bathe them,

I even brush their teeth.

I comb them and I brush them.

I clean their toenails underneath.

 

But, taking care of monsters

Is really a big chore.

You have to be dependable,

And clean their messes up for sure.

 

Now, my Mom says it’s O.K.,

To keep this monster clan,

Just as long as they all stay

Inside our garbage can.
