The Monster Who Was Misunderstood
How Cute!

The Monster Who Was Misunderstood
This is a tale of poor old Frank -
- Frank the monster, not Tom, Rich, or Hank.
He was created by a scientist in a great house.
A house on a mountain, much too big for a mouse.
There in the basement, the doctor toiled night and day,
With the help of his friend Igor, who had little to say.
Finally when all was assembled like a bike,
a bolt of lightning gave dear Frank his new life.
He sat up from the table where he laid for months,
Scratched his square head, and said "I'm ready for lunch!"
He crashed through the door, and went into town,
Where he arrived at the diner and tried to sit down.
But everyone screamed, and left their plates hot.
Even the cooks ran away without their prized pots.
So Frank could have nothing to quell his belly's rumble,
Not a burger, or fries, or even Apple Pie Crumble.
He was almost in tears, and very, very sad,
And walked into the streets where everyone went mad,
And screamed in horror at Frank's sight.
No one had seen such a thing in their life.
Frank tried to explain, "I'm just hungry, that's all.
I mean you no harm, even though I am tall."
A little girl saw him where she sat on the corner,
And thought, he's not so scary, infact he might be an orphan.
So she walked up to Frank and tugged at his sleeve,
And said, "My name is Cinthia, Cindy if you please."
He said, "I'm just a little hungry, and don't know where I am.
" "That's O.K.," Cindy answered, and pulled out some ham--
Ham for a sandwich she was waiting to make,
And she pulled out two slices of bread freshly baked.
They sat on the corner to a half sandwich each,
Both happy, and smiling as a sunny day peach.

The book Frankenstein is one of my favorite books of all time.

I like it! Hard to believe a young woman wrote that story.

In the summer of 1816, while visiting the poet Lord Byron at his villa in Switzerland, Mary Shelley created the character of the Frankenstein monster. During this visit, stormy weather forced the party to spend most of their time indoors. To pass the time, some of Byron's other guests read from a volume of ghost stories. One evening, Byron issued a challenge; that each of his guests should write a ghost story of their own.

Mary's story, which was inspired by a dream, eventually became her most famous literary work, the novel Frankenstein.
