I am convinced that there is a bogeyman.
Now it is important, so let me explain it to you so you can understand.
I see him sometimes when he thinks I'm not looking.
I see the things he does, and it is kind of off-putting.
The way that he slithers and slides.
It's amazing no one has heard their cries.
But what you may think may be evil.
It is not so medieval.
The way that he comes, out of the shadows.
You would think he would take you to the gallows.
But I see him sometimes when he thinks I'm not looking.
The way he goes to the children while they cry.
I'm telling you, he is not a bad guy.
For when they see him, their eyes light up.
He goes after hours, when the kids are in lockup.
He looks at the aftermath of the crimes.
And every time, it looks like a part of him dies.
He coos and shushes.
When he looks at the kids he absolutely gushes.
He calms and plays.
I am telling you, they should count their days.
And after he has laid the children down to sleep.
He makes sure none of them still weep.
Then he leaves.
Then he goes and grieves.
Because he noticed there were less than before.
When he is alone, he lets out a mighty roar.
I'm telling you there is a bogeyman.
And I think that he has a plan.
Because when he thinks I am not looking.
He seems to be unhooking.
I see him when he is going after them.
When he releases mayhem.
So I think they should watch their backs.
But it wont matter, they can't see when the bogeyman attacks.
But I know that he is real.
But when he goes after them, they will reel.
Because they hurt the precious minds.
But no one knows, it was done behind the blinds.
He is real, and he knows when any of the children are hurt.
So they had better be on alert.
So now, now do you see?
There is a bogeyman in this world, but he is not after me.
