Our neighbor is a werewolf
and I know this for a fact.
He may look like he’s human
but I’m certain it’s an act.

I figured out his secret
on my own the other day.
And now I’m warning everyone
to scream and run away.

I know that he’s a werewolf now.
I have no doubt because
who else would want to live inside
a were-house like he does?
