Inky darkness is all around
I hold my breath and hear a sound.
Shallow breathing, a scratch, a thud!
My mind is racing and chills my blood.
I will myself to take a peek
Out of bed across my room I sneak.
I pull open the curtain with a magician's flair
But sadly there is no white rabbit there!
An enormous monster fills the window, wall to wall
Hairy nostrils, yellow fangs and a curdling call.
I turn on my heels and dash back to bed
But it's too late, he's bitten off my head!
