About Monsters - a Poem

Monster Under My Bed 
There's a monster under my bed
That's his home but I never see
He haunts me day and night.  I fear
What will he do, devours the best
Monster 'neath my bed has no name
Had he one, it I wouldn't say
Been said he eats small girls alive
Keep quiet, eyes closed, try to sleep
There's a monster under my bed
He drives me insane, thoughts of him
How do I know he's really there
My brother told me long ago 

There's a monster down there I know 
Every night, way to end my day 
Mother said my monsters aren't real 
Perhaps they aren't but still I look
