Close your eyes.
Go to sleep.
Slumber deep.
Never fear --
Nothing’s here
But me . . .

Stay silent.
No sound.
They’ll hear you.
Don’t whimper.
Don’t cry.
They’ll find you.
Don’t rustle.
Don’t fidget.
They’re coming.
Don’t move.
Don’t breathe.
They’re here . . .

Those shadows.
That sound.
What is that?
That corner.
That shape.
What’s hiding?
The closet.
It’s open.
What’s in there?
Don’t look.
Don’t think.
Don’t scream . . .

It’s pointless to run for the hall,
‘Cause the monsters are faster.
If anything’s under the bed,
It’ll just grab your ankle.
It’s pointless to holler for Mom,
‘Cause the monsters will hear you.
And the monsters will get you
Long before she arrives . . .

That’s stupid.
Grow up.
What’s with you?
It’s nothing.
Remember --
You know that there aren’t any monsters.
So sleep.
Don’t fret.
Good night . . .
