The Neighborhood.

MAGPIE is HERE


The Neighborhood

They said,
(By the way, 
who IS "they"?)
Anyway, they say,
"The Terraplane will 
fit like an aeroplane". 

The condo 'hood
above ground stood--
Plenty space to play.
Underground pipe
for children who like 
to seek...and to hide
(Don't have to find!)

In time (after) great flood
a subdivision built
Big boat, lots animals
with Noah settled nearby
in mud, muck, and mire,
discovered again
How to make--grin-- fire!

Now, only problem left--
be certain--make a list
and check it twice, thrice.
For the 
Groc'ry
Is far
away.....

  8. Interesting take and I sense some turbulent future between the lines. Check that grocery list as you
    don't want to have to make another long trip.
