I occasionally wonder this just as I’m about to fall asleep at night….
What lurks beneath us while we sleep?
A large, hairy monster with big, red eyes and vampire fangs who comes out from under the bed after we fall asleep?
Do our stuffed animals keep it at bay?
Do the two or more of them compete in this battle over if we live to see the dawn over and over again every night?
Or am I wrong, and it’s the other way around?
Are our stuffed animals the real ones who want to harm us?
Is the monster under the bed the one who protects us?
