THE BIG HAIRY GREEN MONSTER...

The Big Hairy Green Monster…

The other day my keys were missing
I heard him in the closet hissing
He watches me at night when I sleep
He plays tootsie with my toes, and whispers Lil Boo Peep
in my ear…
- with a cute monster sneer…
He made my bed the other day
And left a flower on the pillow…
I know he meant well but he left monster slobber on my comforter
And he sheds like crazy, big lumps of green monster hair on everything he touches
A couple of days ago he wanted me to play
I said no because I was sad and sick, I had an odd green glow
He got mad and I found green monster snot in my shoes, and a note that said merder!
Monsters are notoriously bad spellers; he tries to be scary as much as…
- he is hairy, but I know it’s all show…
At night he hides in my closet and keeps me awake while he crunches on cookies
I get mad and run to the door to scold him, but he dissapears, leaving crumbs all over…
The other day I was mad at him and wished for him to be in someone else’s closet
- playing hookie…
But then I realized I didn’t really want that; I would miss my monster if he went away
Who else would keep me up at night and cause all sorts of silly problems for me
My Big Green Hairy Monster really cared for me, I suspected he was just inept this way…
Then one night while I was sleeping, his smelly breath warmed my face
He kissed me, and My Big Green Hairy Monster dissapeared without a trace
And in his place was a handsome man who took me to his magic cloud…
Where we danced all day and all night with absolutely no crowd…
It was just him and me, and baby makes three…

Wait a minute! Will my baby slobber, have bad breath, and grow up to be a Big Hairy Green Monster???

Artist's Description

They really do exist, Big Hairy Green Monsters. You just have to be lucky enough to find one. Don’t be too hard on your Monster, or he will go away, and then you will miss him (or her). And if you are nice to them, they might just turn into something marvelous…
