A Monster in my toilet (A poem for children)


There’s a monster in my toilet,
all yellow fangs and claws.
It bangs against the lid,
and when you flush it roars.

I saw it only last night,
it was swimming like a shark.
During daytime it is sleeping,
but it comes out when it is dark.

My dad says I am joking,
my mum thinks it’s a prank.
But it goes splasing in the bowl,
and hides in the water tank.

Once I tried to catch it,
I used a piece of cheese.
I thought it would be simple,
but it escaped with graceful ease.

I think I’ll leave it in there,
yes I think I’ll let it be.
But in future I’ll be careful.
especially when I wee!

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
