A Monster Behind The Curtains

There's a monster behind the curtains.
Cant't you tell?
His long yellow tail,
and pail hairy feet.
The laws of nature say it's not possible.
But don't you think it's plausible,
that he is possible.

I yell for my mommy.
She doesn't come.
I reach for my cowboy lamp,
to turn the light on.
Despite the slobbery tongue,
and wet cold nose,
my dog's kinda cute,
don't you think?
