The Two-Headed Monster

by Darren Sardelli
A two-headed monster
broke into my house.
He ate every button
on Jennifer’s blouse.

He tasted a table
and chewed on a bed.
He swallowed the hat
on my grandfather’s head.

The monster ingested
the living room floor.
He scarfed down a painting
and dined on a door.

He snacked on the sofa.
He munched on the mats.
He sampled the fur
on my kittens and cats.

Although he enjoyed
all the things that he ate,
he suffered a tragic,
unfortunate fate.

The doctors confirmed it.
I heard what they said.
He ate mother’s cooking,
and now he is dead.
