Poetic Captions: Sock Monster

It's Friday and you know what the means POETRY! Today we are visited by the mysterious and perhaps even dangerous sock monster. 

Sock Monster

The door was open
For only a second
But that’s all it took
For it to slide out
Leaving its partner behind

Inch by inch
It crawled
Across the laundry floor
Inch by inch
It went
Down the hall
To my bedroom door

Knock. Knock. Knock.
“Who’s there?” I squeaked.
I didn’t dare get out of bed

Cr-e-e-e-a-k
Was the only reply
Then that horrible sound started again…

Pee-Yew!
Inch by inch
It crawled
Across my bedroom floor

Inch by inch
It went
Up the wooden post.

I shook and shook
Under my blanket of fleece
I didn’t dare uncover my head

Inch by inch
It crawled
I reached a hand out
Turned the lamp on

Plop!

There it lay
At the foot my bed
My brother’s smelly out sock

Pee-Yew!

I hid under the covers again


What kind of sock monster lives at your house? What does he/she do all day?

  3. This poem made me laugh! I'm just back from buying socks at the sporting goods store because one of my sons is completing in an elite quarterback contest tomorrow and didn't have a pair of matching socks!

  5. Fun! While my mother in law stayed with us she hung up every odd sock in the laundry room for them to wait for their partners :)
