Rat-tat-tat ! 
Linda A. Copp

Rat-tat-tat!
two steppin monster

 It's raw, It's Mean,
It's a Rat-tat-tat-tat Tune.
4 o'clock in the afternoon.
Stormy time, harpies, loons.


Lightening strikes.
Ka bang! Ka boom!
Rat-tat-tat
do you hear that?

ogre
Goblins, Vampires, Zombies, Cats?
Snarling, growling, howling, lips,
things crawling up the fingertips.
Tails are swishing, swing and sway
beating a rhythm only they can play.

Little Devil
Demons dance in their demon home.
Demons prancing up the stairs of stone.

 ghoulies
Scratch, scratch, scratch
no end to that!

Bats
Ogres, Ravens, Orcs or Bats?
Something's stirring something
into boiling vats.

Bang, Bang, Bang-Up
Ka boom, Erupt!

Werewolf
Banshees
screechin'
at the wretched trolls!
Werewolfie's hollerin'
we want your souls!

Rat-tat-tat-tat 
No end to that.

Monsters trot

Everybody groovin',
movin' on the ground.
Bats are beating wings,
hanging upside down.
happy footed monster
Rat-tat-tat-tatting
to the Demon's Dance.
Voodoo-boo-booing
give it half a chance.

Demon Dancer
Come on, grab yourself a pitchfork,
  lift your hooves and prance,
to the rat-tat-tat-tatting
of the Demon's Dance!
