The Slam: Slammables

Monster Rhyme

Monster Rhyme

Legendary boogey down your bed

mama said we weren't there, but of course you know

we be rolling and strolling inside your head

get your covers concealing your head to toe

the beauty of screaming, it's screeching red

it's confusing, really, I'm your friend and foe

thought I'd make you a sonnet

an ode to you

but my words, more than fourteen

so i'll slam the opponent

for you see, dear Doreen

I'm the monster

 

In the drug store, down the basement

wherever you hide, I'm your shadow

I rule your mind like a government

chances of escape rather narrow

beat me down, but I'll rise

predominant though you try

no sweet talks, I won't be nice

and then you'll wonder why

it's because I'm the monster

 

I'm the monster

you're the youngster

whether, young and old, whether rockstar

locking me out but I'm a burglar

you may struggle to win, but I'll come after

it baffles you, does it?

it's because I'm a monster

 

I'm addicted to you for the most part

I'll play you in fact, like it's Mozart

your depression to me is my pop art

I could go on and on, but i won't start

You get sick, don't be sad I'm good company

I could read you a book, I could make you tea

I need you well just to scare you off your knee

I've got my good side too, so you see.

I'm a melody, I'm a monster.

I've got symphony, I'm a monster

It's a tragedy that I'm a monster

Holy reveree, for a monster.
