Closet Monsters

Approach yee closet monsters
Child swinging flashlight sword
And blanket shield of tomorrow's morning sun
Fighting off the dragons of the dark until sleep comes
The work for the knight of the house is finally done
But when does the middling gray become so everyday
That transparent fair and injust lines go astray
Trying to keep track of the decreasing black and white
Is more challenging than convincing a child that there is no closet monster to fight
