In the Universe, there is a world;
in that world there is a town;
in that town there is a neighbourhood;
in that neighbourhood there is a street;
in that street, there is a building;
in that building there is a space;
in that space there is cinema;
in that cinema there is a platform;
on that platform there is a carpet;
on that carpet there is a bed;
on that bed there is a mattress;
on that mattress there is a pillow;
on that pillow there is a head;
in that head there is an eye;
in that eye there is an image.
Based on children’s song from the region of Les Deux-Sèvres (1), France and my mom’s way of scaring her younger brother when there were kids. Her version started with: “In the dark, dark forest there is a dark, dark house (...)”.
