Friendly Monsters



Creepy crawlies running down my hand
Dark shadows looming the dark
Twisted creatures hiding beneath my bed
These are the things running through my head

Never look down or you might see
Something you wish you hadn't
As you start to flee

Take a moment to think-
Are they really bad?
“Dark” spirits that lurk around
Or are they really just sad

Maybe Casper really exists
I really do insist

So take its hand
And you might just see
What “scary” creatures can really be?
