Monsters, by BanWynn (Suta) Oakshadow

Godzilla no longer thrashes towns
Freddy Kruger’s lost his claws
Cthulu sleeps in the quiet deeps
Hydras close their hungry maws
King Kong no longer claims the heights
Monsters done with fang-filled jaws
For very worst of nightmarish terrors
…is a wife in menopause
