About the Poem
I started writing this, and the words were coming to me so quickly. As I was writing, it started out to be a "thriller". But in the end it all changed. Several people have gotten a tickle out of this poem, as I hope you will.

From my front porch I stepped.
And from the darkness The Evil leapt.
My heart did pound at this terrible sight.
I thought the monster got me on this night.
His "claws" were bare and cold as ice.
I had no time to stop and think twice.
I grabbed the knife from in my pocket.
I stabbed it in him like a rocket.
He moaned a sound I've never heard .
To this day I've spoken no word.
It pains me so to tell you now.
All it was, was the neighbors cow!!
