Big Scary Monsters

Rating: 4.0
Big scary monsters,
the ones that get you at night,
they hide in cupboards and behind doors,
just to give you a fright!

But have you ever wondered
what its like to be a monster
hiding in the dark,
and not coming into the light.

Now, if i took my monsters
out into the light
i wonder what they would do first,
go to the park or maybe fly a kite.

maybe they would play on the swings,
or maybe go on the slide,
you never know what they might do
they might even try and ride a bike!

i dont think id like to be a monster
and never come out in the light
i dont want to hide behind doors or
in cupboards
and give people a fright.

so next time you go to bed
cut the monsters some slack
let them come out and give you a fright,
after all,
they only get to come out at night.

For Jack xx

This is brilliant and made me laugh. My sons have just turned four and I just have to read this poem to them. It made the 'monster' appear more scared then scary. Lovely composition.

Great! But this monster thing right before my bedtime! Holding you responsible if they disturb my dreams. I enjoyed reading this and suggest that you sit at Jack's bedside (if that is not feasible, try neutral location) and, while holding his hand only, read it to him. He will melt, depending on his flashpoint. Keep writing. H
