Creature Feature - Out of Standard

Greetings Garden Dwellers and welcome back to the Out of Standard.
Here I will call upon your highest poetic powers to go beyond the ordinary and conjure up something unexpected. Today's challenge.....

Creature Feature
Pictured above is Cut Face Cove. It's home to the most haunted shores in northern Minnesota.  Some claim ghosts of fishermen wail along to its lapping water. Other's speak of sea monsters. Some still insist on werewolves. Your job: conjure up a monster that lives here and write a poem about it. Here's the catch (this is suppose go beyond expected, right?)'ll have to follow the recipe below:

You monster must
1. Be dressed in something unexpected.
2. Have a favorite song to sooth it's rage.
3. Know only one word.
4. Be very afraid of something commonplace.

So go now, my muddy buddies and bring back something frightfully delightful.

Thank you for the fun prompt Izy!

This way I will need to nightmare myself a little before writing... I look forward to read what people come up with, but it's past bedtime here.

Such fun and imaginative pieces so far! Throwing my own at the wall!

I got myself in a bit of a tangle with my monster, which seems to have turned into a shipwrecked Miss Havisham! I'll post it anyway.

This was a fun way to finish one I had in draft. I made it to sort of fit, not arms and legs got sleeves or pantlegs.

Hi Izy, so sorry I am not yet ready to participate. I have my character all lined up but just no time to write. I will attempt to complete my piece by Halloween, at least.

Ha! Not setting the bar too high, are you Isadora! I will try. This is my first gander at it and it's Friday night at 9:00 pm I'm off to the horse barn right now and will try to write something - but I'm off on a trip for a week and I'm not sure packing (and do I have to clean house before I leave?) and all will get done before Sunday 4 am when I take off... :( I'll do my best but if I don't get to it, thank you for always supplying an amazing challenge!
