Sitting in the dark watching the late night show.
Eating popcorn and chips and drinking soda really slow.
The movie is about to start and is sure to be scary,
I won’t tell you what it is, but the creature is hairy.
It works by day and falls a sleep at night.
But it wakes before dawn to go out for a bite.
Maybe you know, who this is by now.
And chances are, you have heard him howl.
