The Misunderstood Monster

'I hate being a monster mum'
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'

this could have been used in the 'blurb' for Monsters Inc. not silly but fun. you really do manage to capture that magic moment when kids, aged about 4 to 7, are a sheer delight to observe.

The only monster in this world is human kind. We must be afraid of this and his madness.
