'The Hairy Plug Monster ...and Christmas

As she stood by the tree, Maya’s eyes opened wide

There were stars hung all over, with chocolates inside

Tinsel and baubles, with lights wrapped around

And even more presents that lay on the ground

On the shelf by the fire, Dad Place a mince pie

With a nice juicy carrot, So Maya asked “why”?

“You need to leave food for the reindeer”, dad said

“And Father Christmas wants mince pies, to keep himself fed.

Climbing up and down chimneys, All night isn’t fun

And he can’t take a break ,when there’s work to be done

Perhaps you can help?”,dad said with a laugh

“With the Hairy Plug Monster ,Who lives under the bath”

Maya thought for a while

And she smiled and then said

“Maybe I could,”

And went off to bed.

A few hours later

Maya hadn’t slept

So into the bathroom

She silently crept,

The Hairy Plug Monster

Was sat by the soap,

With a floppy red stocking

All tied up with rope

Maya asked once again

“Do you fancy a feed? ”

And the Hairy Plug Monster

Smiled and agreed

“We’ve got Mince Pies, and chocolates

and a huge Christmas Cake

There’s even a turkey

All ready to bake”

So they tiptoed downstairs

and walked through the hall

straight to the kitchen

to the fridge by the wall

Maya opened the door

and they both peeked inside

And the Hairy Plug Monster’s

One Eye opened wide

There on the shelf was a large plate of Jelly

A trifle and pudding and cheese that was smelly

There was mince pies and chocolates

And cranberry jam, Sprouts and Potatoes

And a big piece of ham

The Hairy Plug Monster

Jumped onto the shelf

And in no time at all

He was helping himself

Maya said to her friend

“That’s all we’ve got

Its Christmas tomorrow

And you cant eat the lot”

But the Hairy Plug Monster,

Didn’t reply, he was already munching

On a tasty mince pie

He tried out the pudding, and some of the cake

And then all the sprouts,……….


What a mistake

Yuk –yuk yuk yuk

What a funny old taste

He didn’t like sprouts

And curled up his face

The hairy plug monster,

Was hungry no more

And sat down and sulked

On the cold kitchen floor,

Maya thought and then said

“I know just what to do”

Father Christmas is coming

He’ll be here very soon

They went to the front room,

And both peeked inside

And The Hairy Plug Monster’s one eye

Opened Wide

There by the fire was a man dressed in red

With a big floppy hat

That was hung from his head.

His belt and his boots were shiny and black

And down by his side was a huge great big sack

Hello Father Christmas, said Maya with charm

And she held put a mince pie at the end of her arm

I’ve come to help and make sure that you’re fed

You can sit down and rest while everyone’s in bed

Father Christmas sat down, with the pie on his knee

While Maya placed presents around the big tree

Thank you said Santa, and started to yawn,

It’s time that I went, for soon it is dawn

Father Christmas got back, on his magical sleigh

Gave a carrot to Rudolph, and then flew away.

The Hairy Plug Monster needed a nap, so he crept back upstairs

And squeezed back through the tap,

His stocking was full of presents and toys

And a small yellow duck - that made a strange noise

“What’s that noise?”, said her dad the next day with a shout

“There’s a noise from the hole where the water runs out”

“You know who that is” Maya said with a laugh

“That’s the Hairy plug Monster…..who lives under the bath”.
