There are Monsters in the Sky

FOR RUTH  “There are Monsters in the Sky” 1972  for Ruth

There are monsters in the sky

There are monsters in the air

There are monsters over here and

There are monsters over there

 

They are coming through the windows

They are coming through the doors

They are coming through the ceiling

And they are coming through the floors

 

Who can come and try to help me

Someone come and try to help me’

So the monsters will not get me

So the monsters cannot get me

 

There are monsters in the sky

There are monsters in the air

There are monsters over here and

There are monsters over there

 

I must summon up my magic

From the kernel of my soul

I must erect a shield of magic

Before the monsters steal my soul

 

I must close my eyes and concentrate

And take myself in hand

I must summon up my courage

And drive them from the land
