“The Monster in the Attic”
(A Classique Doodle from 9/11/2011)
Clifford wasn’t sure what it was, or whence it did came
Why, the Monster in the Attic didn’t even have a name.
It demanded the boy feed it babies, and if Clifford didn’t comply
The beast would eat his parents, and his entire family would die.
So Clifford brought it some infants; but only just a few!
He didn’t want to lose his family, so what else could he do?
He felt guilty stealing newborns, but rationalized it away
They were only stupid babies, and he “had” to obey!
But soon a baby a week became several each night
And Clifford only wishes that he had put up a fight
And not let the problem get to this advanced stage
But now that he has, he feels trapped in a cage.
While it’s easier to keep going than to right all his wrongs
It doesn’t solve anything; the problem only prolongs.
So the Monster gets bigger, as Young Clifford feeds it still
He knows he has to stop… but he just doesn’t have the will.
