Ten Things Scarier than Monsters

A doctor with a needle.
A dentist with a drill.
The teacher in my classroom.
My little sister Jill.

Standing under mistletoe.
The bully at my school.
My brother's dirty diaper.
A warm spot in the pool.

Looking up to see a sea gull
flying overhead.
After eating half a sandwich,
finding mold upon the bread.
