The Tickle Monster

by

Michael Auguste

The post office carries posters
Towns live in fear that night will fall
For under the veil of darkness
The tickle monster might just call

For years he's roamed both near and far
He thrives on laughter, giggles too
Please bolt your doors, turn out your lights
Or else he might just tickle you

Should you encounter him one night
It's best to smile, he'll go away
But if you don't, he'll make you laugh
Better listen to what I say

He'll tickle you until you scream
He preys on faces that don't grin
I'll even sometimes force a smile
So that his tickle cannot win

Too old we are for fairy tales
I'm sure to you this poem a lie
But just in case this monster's real
I'll keep my smile, avoid a sigh

hi Auguste,
This poem just elevated my mood!

As you say...
"Just in case this monster is real"
Well here I go Monster I'm smiling away

Well, The Tickle Monster sure beats the heck out of
the FBI's Ten Most Wanted poster !

Not just smiling ... **giggling**.

Debbie,
Glad you liked it.  Thanks for stopping by.

American Princess,
Yes, tickles are fun sometimes, especially to the person doing the actualy tickling.  Thanks!

~Michael~

Was nice reading this one again!!     One night Michael and I were talking...and he felt my growing sadness in the conversation.  So he whipped this off his website and gave me a huge smile!!  I LOVE this poem!

I totally second your comment Midnitesun!  

     

Today...I had to keep telling myself that Michael wouldn't want me to be sad, but to be happy for where he is now...for he is certainly without pain.  I just find it hard to believe that I just can't pick up the phone anymore to hear his voice.  I think that is the hardest part for me.  Anyway, I just wanted you to know that I am feeling your pain.
