Monster Poems for Children

By Josie Whitehead

Monsters, Monsters, Everywhere

There were monsters in our kitchen

     Sharing Mummy’s cake,

But Dad arrived and drove them out.

     Oh, they made a big mistake.


There's a monster in my bathtub

     And he’s tickling my toes . . . ooh!

And now he's on my handkerchief

     And he’s tickling my nose.




Monster’s monsters everywhere!

        Oooh!  I see another three.

They’re sitting on our sofa there  . . .

       And watching our tv!


We’ve some here in our classroom:

     They’re in Josie’s poems again - - -

But, our teacher’s sure to catch them,

     And he’s carrying a cane!


Mum cooked some in her cooking pot

       And made a tasty stew,

But we ate them all for dinner:

      And we left not one for you!
