-Are There Monsters Under My Bed?-

Image

After all of us are fed,

Daddy tucks us into bed.

And just before he turns off the light,

A bed-time story, he tells us each night.

A princess rescued by her knight in armour,

A beautiful fairy who saved a farmer.

Aladdin on his magic carpet,

Three little pigs who went to the market.

Talking animals, clowns who cried,

Wooden Pinocchio who always lied.

Pirates, bandits, thieves and monsters,

Some who hid in the darkest corners.

Then one night, when Daddy left,

Little Lucy got scared and wept.

‘Are there monsters under my bed?’

‘You should check’, naughty Tommy said.

Little Lucy cried some more,

That brought Daddy to the door.

‘Are there monsters under my bed?’

Daddy laughed until he was red!

He gave little Lucy a hug and kiss,

Naughty Tommy got a pinch.

‘Oh you silly girl’, Daddy said,

‘Of course there are no monsters under your bed!’
