REAL MONSTERS

I met a fearsome dragon once
She taught me at my school.
I came across an ogre who
Was lifeguard at the pool.
I even met a vampire who
Was boss at my first job.
And then there was the werewolf
That most people just called "Rob."
The guy who works at Starbucks is
A demon in disguise.
My landlady would kill me
If I looked into her eyes.
Yes, life is full of monsters,
Worse than those in books and things,
Because the real ones often come
Disguised as human beings.
