    There are monsters in the Shire.... Here's a poem about one that was recited on my behalf by Tahitoa at the 4th Scary Burrow Walk, November 1st 2015.

    The Monster

    A monster! A monster!
    It is coming for me!
    I can see at the end of the hall
    As a storm breaks outside
    I'm trapped up inside
    And no one to hear my calls

    It's moving! It's moving!
    A few strides it takes
    It shudders with deadly intent
    With each step it makes
    The floor seems to quake
    I huddle deep into my bed

    Much closer! Much closer!
    I can now see its eyes
    They are filled with a fiery glow
    And its drooling mouth
    With sharp fangs sticking out
    Its figure is starting to grow

    The growling! The howling!
    The noises it makes
    A sickening slobbering sound
    A shriek brings me pain
    Such a deadly refrain
    As outside the thunder still pounds

    The candles! The candles!
    They've now all gone out
    A fearsome howling wind blows
    And with each lightening blast
    A deep shadow it casts
    I sense the beast's breath on my toes

    It's over! It's over!
    For there on my bed
    The beast sits there ready to claw
    So I close up my eyes
    As I sense my demise
    And then I remember no more...

    It's morning! It's morning!
    I was not eaten up
    For there fast asleep by my head
    Curled up in the ball
    It's no monster at all
    But my frightened pet dog on my bed
    Rubellita, Lully, Potty and 2 others like this.
