Boom! I am a monster, bellowed the monster above the bed
I am not afraid, says the boy with dry eyes
But it's my job to scare you, says the monster
Who gave you this job? Asks the boy
My creator, answers the monster. He made you, too.
Why? Asks the boy
So I would have someone to scare, answers the monster
Who did He make first, me or you? Asks the boy
Me, of course, huffs the monster. I am mighty. I am older and bigger than you.
But you do not scare me, says the boy. Your job is useless.
Why do you not fear me? Asks the monster
Because He spoke to me, this Creator, answers the boy
When? Asks the monster
When you turned my home into dust and mixed it with my blood, answers the boy
What did He tell you? Asks the monster
He said once I have seen who is stronger than you, I should not fear you, says the boy
Who is stronger than me? Huffs the monster
Him, cries the boy
