The Opposite World of a Child "Friendly Monsters"

The mean monster under the bed came out to play with me,
We danced and danced together under the singing silly stars,
We slept under the moon together and wondered about the world,
“What did George Washington name his horse?”
“Why don’t the sun and moon ever dance together?”
“Why do seeds grow in the ground and not in the clouds?”
“I don’t know,” said the monster,
“What if I am the only one who exists?”
Said the child,
“Maybe everything is a dream”
“This is not a dream,”
Said the monster,
“You are not the only one who exists, I exist too,”
“Now everything make sense,” said the child,
The child woke up to a
World he didn’t know.

The world in the point of view of an innocent child who does not understand why everything is the way it is.
