Monster Ball

Just a fun little poem in celebration of an upcoming holiday:


In the night they come.

They creep! They crawl. Jump and hop! They slither and sneak. They slink! They slide! They glide! Off to the Monster Ball!

Some tiptoe and others stomp.
Some trudge and others tromp.
There are those that creep and those that leap!
Off to the Monster Ball!

This one strolls. This one rolls.
Off to the Monster Ball!

They come from under your bed.
They come back from the dead.
They come from under the ground
Where only worms and dirt are found.
They come to the Monster Ball!

And at the Monster Ball, in Monstropolis Hall,
They dance! They prance! All at the magnificent Monster Ball!

And when the night is through,
And when the day is new,
They creep! They crawl. Jump and hop! They slither and sneak. They slink! They slide! They glide! Off to bed.
