The One Eyed Monster

There once was a monster with a very big eye,

whose sole purpose in life was to learn how to fly.​

He'd climb onto rooftops and jump in the air,

diving and gliding with intention and flair.​

But no matter how often or how hard he would try,

he'd land with a thud, he just couldn't fly.​

Instead of a bird soaring high in the air,

he was a sad little monster filled with despair.​

One day an idea filled his round furry head,

maybe he'd just build an airplane instead.​

So he worked through the day,

and all through the night.​

He used all of his tools,

his bed, and his kite.

Every thought he could think,

in his small little brain,​

Was used to create,

his new monster plane.​

The very next morning,

there was no time to play.​

He ran to the rooftop,

without any delay.​

With birds all around him,

and the sun shining bright,​

A happy little monster,

took his very first flight!
