"Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." - Dr. Seuss

The day will come,
I pray,
When all of this will be over.
We’ll sit on park benches
And throw pigeons at the bread,
Take the subway to Santa Monica -
You name it, it’s done.
We’ll park our yachts in the living room
And play doctor to the help
And those kids will stop throwing
Chickens at the front door.
We’ll go to that Kansas beach,
Maybe scale the mountains
Back east in the grasslands.
You can’t walk so good anymore -
That’s fine -
I’ll push you wherever
You wanna go
In that old swingset we had
When we were kids.

The author's comments:
I wrote this in a "making sense and nonsense with the written word" poetry workshop at school. The prompt was, "something normal that took you by surprise," or something that starts out normal/expected and gets really weird. The instructors remarked that I seemed to do the exact opposite with this one.
