The Misunderstood Monster
The little monster said
'I’m scared of other monsters
And I hate it under beds
It hurts when children run away
I jump when people scream
I don’t suit a monster diet
Just give me chips and ice cream
I’m allergic to dust and spiders
I need to hold hands in the dark
I don’t want to make noises in cupboards
I’d rather go play in the park?
I guess what I’m trying to say mum
Is I’m different to you and dad
Do you think you could love me as I am?
Cause I’m no good at being bad'
