THE PLANET OF MARS by Shel Silverstein
On the planet of Mars
They have clothes just like ours
And they have the same shoes and same laces,
And they have the same charms and same graces,
And they have the same heads and same faces....
But not in the
MY FAVOURITE MONSTERS by Vincent James
When bedtime comes, I’ve heard it said,
Some children check beneath the bed.
They lose their sleep, they lose their hair,
In fear of monsters lying there.
But monsters I have always found
Are lots of fun to have around.
In fact there’s one under my bed
He’s very friendly, his name is Ted.
And Daniel, the dragon, has made his lair
In my toy box, over there.
In my top drawer, among the socks
Lives an eight-eyed squengie, whose name is Jock.
In the wardrobe, where it’s very dim
Lives Colin, but he’s never in.
Outside in our garden shed
Lives a monster I call Spongy Fred.
This monster’s name is Norma Hubbard
She hides inside the airing cupboard.
Jim, with a face like an alligator
Snuggles beside the radiator.
This in Nicola, covered in hair
She lurks in the shadows beneath the stair.
Lastly there’s Roger, I like him a lot
He lives inside our old tea pot.
So monsters, whether big or small
Needn’t frighten us at all.
Just remember to be polite
And don’t forget to say goodnight.
