Wait guys you know me!
He's the monster
Yeah lets get him!
You were so quick to kill Charlie, and you were so quick to tell us who we should be careful of--the men grab Charlie and tackle him.
Your the monster!!!
I'll get those monsters
The neighbors go after each other nervous and mad looking for a scapegoat.
In the story Monsters Are Due On Maple Street the theme is thoughts and acusations are as powerful as weapons because in the first scene Charlie killed a neighbor that the residents of Maple street have known for years because his thoughts and nervousness made him believe Pete was a monster. His actions got the innocent man murdered.The second scene supports the theme because the mens' judgements of Charlie getting scared and shooting Pete caused them to tackle him and hurt him. Though Charlie wasn't the monster, they believed he was because of his decision to shoot the figure.The last scene supports the theme because finally at the end of the story everyone turns on everyone and start throwing things at each other hurting the neighbors they've known for years. Their thoughts and judgements finally outburst as they destroy each other. So overall this story is a perfect example of the theme thoughts and accusations are as powerful as wepons and it shows that this theme can be found anywhere in the world.
