164. Monster!

This is an offering for 

You can also find a story called 'Mom's' on my ETT SETTERA Blog
 and a photograph of a heavenly Morning on my PLUS blog.

Little boys have the habit of turning into Monsters, particularly at bed-time!


Monty is a monster! I think we might have guessed.
He's wearing mummy's make-up and some medals on his chest.
He's making mighty magic moves. He thinks he's very tough.
Hurry up, Monty! I think we've had enough!

Monty is a monster wearing a disguise.
Monty has a mask that covers up his eyes.
His fingernails are menacing! He fills us all with dread!
Hurry up, Monty! Time to go to bed!

Monty is a monster! Listen to him moan,
Muttering and mumbling and he wont leave us alone!
"Mummy! Aren't I marvellous! Granny! Aren't I great!'
Hurry up, Monty! It's getting very late!

Monty is a monster with murder on his mind.
Monsters always misbehave! That's how they're designed!
He'll stay awake till midnight if we don't make a stand!
Monty's gone to bed at last. 
Aint life grand!

Sounds just like my three monster grandsons and my one son.
And we won't even mention my monster of a daughter when she was young.

My interpretation:
Kevin Rudd is a Monster or a flop

Hahaha, one at my place too. He's just 3 but can drive me nuts.
Oh, but he is a sweetheart. Waited for him to come for 15 years.
Great choice for 'M'.

Thanks for this funny M poem! It'sw cleverly done! said...

good poem, did you make that up? I bet the kids would love it if you read it to them.

Rose said...

I'm so glad you left a comment on my post--otherwise I probably wouldn't have found your delightful blog! Your M poem reminds me of "Where the Wild Things Are."

And the poem "Pennies from Kevin" is great! I haven't been paying much attention to all the world news, but I gather Australia is having a similar crisis to that of the US. Are your pennies called an "economic stimulus package" as well?:)
