The Final scary installment…
And the Monsters rolled up the drain pipe and squatted outside you window: CHOMP-STOMP-CRUNCHY-CRUNCH! The monsters are ever so very hungry At the stroke of midnight, the billion year old, evolved, shrunken monster crept under your bed, oozed into your closet, slunk onto you window sill: CREPT, OOZED, SLUNK- Demons to make you afraid and have nightmares; so scared, too scared to be bright and shiny.
The scary Monster Rock that squats under your bed, rolls monstrously around in your closet and hunkers outside on your window sill is…hungry. HUNGRY-HUNGRY-GRUNT-BURGLE-BURP!
CHOMP! the Rock ate the monster that crept under your bed: CHOMP-CHOMP: still hungry, noshed the imps in the closet, snakered down the gremlins, ghosties and ghouls outside you window: NOSH-CHOMP-BURP-BURGLE!
The very hungry Monster Rock ate up every Monster in Ventura and Seattle, Patagonia, and Antarctica and Freelandia. Yet the Scary Monster Rock is so very hungry and has another billion years years to travel and roll and get shot out of volcanoes.
But don’t worry, because you are filled with a wonderful brave light. The light calls the Scary Monster Rock to you and eats up all your fears. Every brave thing you ever did makes your light grow brighter. No matter where the Rock is: the deepest ocean, the driest desert or the darkest cave; no matter where it is tumble-grumble-rolling it will see your light and gnash-gobble-gulp it’s way to you.
Hold the light, your brave wonderful light in your hand ad the Scary Monster Rock will roll up your street and into your house. It will grumble-grunt roll: “I’m coming to get you and eat you right up!” and snorfy snack up any tasty monsters with in a hundred-million-billion miles. It will roll into your hand and bask in your light and ding-a-dig-digest a hundred-million-billion monsters. The Rock will purr like a kitten in the sunshine as you hold the world in your hand
