Under the Rug

Based on the picture entitled “Under the Rug” by Harris Burdick

 

Here I sit, alone on the couch
Hardly a sound throughout the whole house
But every slight noise gives me a start
For the darkness is chilling, right through to my heart
Ever since I moved houses, I’ve gotten these chills
If the air here gets colder, I’ll run for the hills
Don’t let outside fool you, it’s not colored and nice
It’s damp and it’s moldy, filled with dead rats and mice
It’s stinky and spooky, there are webs everywhere
But the eeriest part is the thing by the stairs
On some occasions, there comes a loud thump
Then under the carpet, there is a large bump
It wiggles and squirms, no matter what I may do
And it won’t go away ‘til a quarter past two
It’s lumpy and ugly, and it’s got a strange smell
If I didn’t know better, I’d say it came straight from Hell
I’ve tried kicking and stomping, slapping and whacking
Punching, striking, beating, attacking
I’ve hit it with chairs and I’ve begged it to quit
I think annoyed moans are the best that I’ll get
I’ve wondered and wondered why it’s there at all
Blocking my stairs and cluttering my hall
Now I walk to the spot to see if it’s there
I don’t see a bump, but the spot is not bare
Now there’s a hole where the bump used to be
And a sudden dark thought has just occurred to me
The landlord had claimed it would make my life hard—
This house was built on a forgotten graveyard
I hear a moaning, but what could it be?
Whatever it is, it’s standing right behind me…
