That is marvellous!!! Very clever.Lots of tension, lots of fun. I think it is going to do well.
Not bad and you definitely got the grrr! in.
Great twist, a pesky brother was the last thing I expected as a monster.
A perfect title. I admire poets, and you're really good.
I so enjoyed reading this poem. Your rythm has a fun, light feel and yet your word choice still creates tension - a great combination! Congrats on an excellent submission.
very good poetry rythem that kept the story moving with ease.
Perfect in so many ways. I love reading poetry, but so often it isn't all that interesting. This is such a well-told story in poetic splendor.
Hope to see it as a winner.

A fun poem with a great ending! Good job.
Simply captivating in its simplicity, Well, well done. Bravo!
The flow was great, making it the sort of poem you can read aloud with ease. I could see the trees and feel her panic as she runs. Something tells me her brother is indeed going to be very sorry.
Well done, I love this.
Very visual and scary! Loved the twist at the end.
What a fun poem! Terrific use of "grrr". I had a similar experience with my brother while in my teens, and have never let him forget it!
