I was out for a stroll one morning

Down by the lake I stray

When a monster came out of the water

And asked for the time of day.


I was disturbed and befuddled but answered

That I did not bring my phone.

He looked surprised and then replied,

 "I want the time, not to call home.


You have no clock or watch

No device for the time of day?

What kind of human doesn't have time?

You must be defective, I'd say!"


All the sudden a jogger appeared

And there was a watch on her arm

She took one look at the monster

 And screamed with great alarm!


 Well the monster gobbled her up!

I was stunned by the hideous crime!

Then the monster burped and politely said,

"Good meals are served with time."
