Poem: "Home Is the Hunter"

This poem came out of the August 16, 2011 perk fishbowl.  It was inspired by a prompt from my_partner_doug following a discussion with janetmiles.  It was sponsored by laffingkat.  The form is a double-dactyl.  You can read the other Monster House poems online.


Home Is the Hunter
-- a double-dactyl


Bogeyman, bogeyman
Looming and lurking and
Pale as a fishbelly,
Hair free of comb --
He is a monstrous thing,
Incomprehensible,
Murderous, menacing ...
'Til he comes home.
