Can you tell me, if you know,
Is there really such a creature,
as the Blah-blah monster?
My grandniece Zoey asserts,
with fifty percent certainty,
this monster is only imaginary.
Which leaves room for doubt,
and further inquiry;
Is Blah-blah perhaps a reality?
I must admit, I’d never heard of,
this monster named double-blah;
nope, never heard of him, and never saw.
But Zoey’s question is worrisome,
if Blah-blah is really real,
what’s he up to, and what’s his deal?
If Blah-blah is real, I’m guessing,
he’s not the type to hide under our beds,
he’s more likely to lurk inside our heads.
Perhaps he’s a specter of the air,
hiding in plain sight everywhere,
filling the space between mouth and ear.
From a family renowned for its tedium,
his father was Blah, and quite boring,
and blah-blah-blah are his offspring.
Blah-blah the monster, might be real,
the signs all show probability,
but take this with equanimity.
Blah-blah is not very scary,
if this monster exists among us,
I’m seventy-five percent sure that he’s harmless.
