Does the monster come to kill me?

By: Shelby Brunson

Does the monster come to kill me

I shout and the hallway echos

Loud stomps echos

I am terrified

I try to make my way back home

The monster spots me

I am a mouse that scurrys

Across the floors I slide

Traps are put down

Does the monster come to kill me

The smell is great but they hurt

I get to close

I can’t run away my feet are stuck

My family told me once you’re stuck

The monster eats you

 

Does the monster come to kill me

I am sorry family but the tap snaps dark

The box is picked up slowly

Then the box is on the ground again

I see the light of the outside

I ran out and there I see

Does the monster want to kill me

The mice that got eaten

And the mice that got away

When I turn I see

The monster smiles back at me

It walks away only to return

Another mouse that got eaten
