Spoiled by Carson Eelman- 7th grader

A tribute to Ray Bradbury's The Veldt Spoiled by Carson Eelman The nursery is a curious place a place where dreams came true inside lied an African Veldt. In there the leaves would sway, as the grass danced in the wind, the lions roar, the sun beats hot, it seems so real but know it's not. In a world where thoughts come true, what evil acts young minds will do; I don't think we are alone, in this place where lions roam. The power of imagination, can be a wonderful thing, full of magic, fun, and wonder; but it can turn to darkness as well. The nursery became corrupted, with thoughts of death, becoming real to Mom and Dad. In a world where thoughts come true, what evil acts young minds will do; I don't think we are alone, in this place where lions roam. The called a man to see what's wrong but honestly he wasn't sure. He said they should take a break, and so the father said, "Shut down the house, we are ready to go," but the kids said "Please No!" In a world where thoughts come true, what evil acts young minds will do; I don't think we are alone, in this place where lions roam. They couldn't let it happen, so they locked both inside. The parents screamed and banged, but to no reply. The lions came and they were gone. Peter and Wendy flashed a wicked grin, then settled down and ate a meal. In a world where thoughts come true, what evil acts young minds will do; I don't think we are alone, in this place where lions roam. In a world where thoughts come true, what evil acts young minds will do; I don't think we are alone, in this place where lions roam.
