The Monster Hunt

The Monster Hunt

We are looking for the monster

That gave us such a fright

The noise we heard woke me and Sue

We stayed up half the night

We know that there’s no monsters

In the light, during the day

But to keep the beasties out at night

Mom gave us "Monster Spray"

We heard the monster running

Back and forth across the roof

Then a shadow loomed up on the wall

Now we had our proof!

Sue is such a girl … She screamed

But I’m the brave big brother

I didn’t want to panic too

So I ran to get my mother

By the time our mom and dad came in

The monster, he had fled

We checked the closet, toy box too

And under our bunk bed

Sue started spraying "Monster Spray"

To keep the monster out

But I know that he’s lurking

Outside the window … There’s no doubt

So I will go to sleep tonight

And wait till in the morning

I’ll find that monster, wait and see

I’ll sneak up with no warning

I know that he was on the roof

I know that he can run

I know he has big teeth and claws

This won’t be any fun

I’m going monster hunting

When it’s light enough to see

The first place I will have to look

Is in the big oak tree

So here I go, and Sue came too

She’ll just get in the way

On second thought, this might work

She brought the" Monster Spray"

On tippy toes we’re hunting

As quiet as can be

And there beside our window

Is the giant old oak tree

That’s where the monster’s hiding out

It is the perfect place

He can sneak up to our window

With his creepy monster face

"Don’t you dare climb up that tree!"

Mom said, "You’ll break your neck!"

So we shook that tree with all our might

Then we looked up just to check

Can you see it? Can you see it Sue?

Up between the leaves?

The monster … He’s not in our room

He’s hiding in the trees!

The monster stays awake at night

And sleeps for most the day

But he popped right up to look around

When the tree began to sway

I can see the teeth and claws

But I thought he’d be BIG!

Sue can’t see him yet, she said

As she danced an antsy jig

The monster started chattering

And darted up a limb

And Sue gave out a great big squeal

When she got a look at him

She started spraying "Monster Spray"

She is SUCH a girl!

The "Monster Spray" just got him wet

He was just a baby squirrel!
