Off To Imaginary Land


If you're asked to give directions
To a strange uncommon place
Don't fret or frown
Nor pull that puzzled face

Just pipe up to say
Oh, easy is the way

Just go through a labyrinth
Onto fields of hyacinth
Behind the very next mirage
Next to the goblin's garage
Down below to the fairy's forest
Where you be an ogre's guest
Walk then to the hut of a gnome
Where wicked witches roam
Or where trolls have made their home
Around the toothfairy's dome.
Then turn left to where the wily wizard stayed
Behind the corner where pointy pixies played
And then to the right
Where brownies dwelled
In lil mushroom mansions where spells they spelled
And if you've time to actually eavesdrop
Place that ear against the keyhole of the elve's lil shop
Hear their enchanting chants
As they sell their magic wands
Hear tall tales about short pixies
Or of leprechauns in their sixties
Then you'll come across a genie's cave
Where when you see a sprite, just wave
To shrink to toadstool size now
Don't you pick a silly row
Just ask that genie to show you how

Then lastly move on to where lived the imps
Ah those might really have descended from chimps
But the notion and these creatures are imaginary
Like greek mythology and the theory
If travellers willfully want to be lost
Send them there at all or no cost. ;)

    Yes, everything is not easy to grab but don't loose the hope. Like Robinson Cruso, in a barren island, he fought against the cannibles, and natural disasters etc. This is a poem that surely pull ones leg towards success. (Y) (Report) Reply

    Delightful journey I hate to see end
    I had to read it all over again
    Could there be a second retelling or three
    just was not enough there to satisfy me (Report) Reply
