XXXI Days of Poetry - Day the Seventh

Felis Silversteinis

Don't want to alarm you,
Or cause you undue fright;
Don't want you waking terrified and
Screaming in the night.
But there are some hard truths of which
You need to be aware:
It's time you learned the secret world
That's going on down there.

Sorry to be the one
To break this awful news. 
(And, I understand if
You need to gulp some booze.)
There is no easy way
To speak the awful truth;
But I will do my best
To handle it with 'couth. 

Down below your bed
(and couch and dresser too), 
Exists a secret clan; 
Half-feral and half-schmoo.
While staying out of sight, 
At night they have their run.
These creatures of the Steppe;
(that was an awful pun).

I wish I could do more, 
To put your mind at ease;
To gently calm your nerves, 
And steady your weak knees.
But Floor Monsters exist, 
Whether you believe or not.
So now that you've been warned, 
Try hard to not get caught!
