One day I was walking in the Monster Hotel.
A door was open and I could tell.
The monster I saw was the scariest guest.
He was perched inside a messy nest.
With huge sharp teeth and bloodshot eyes,
His talon claws were a fearful surprise.
He caught me standing by his door,
and gave a long screechy roar.
It put a chill right down my spine,
Why am I here? Have I lost my mind?
He motioned me to come inside his room.
I thought I had met my doom.
Imagine my surprise,
he gave me a T-shirt just my size -
We became best friends that monster and I -
Watching sports on T.V. and eating pie.
His favorite nintendo game was Star Wars,
and after we played that,
we stayed up all night eating MARS bars.
