We came across a jungle gym that took up what seemed like a quarter acre
Complete with rope bridges, wheels, sliding boards and ramps.
Bein a practical adult whose mind's eye has been dimmed by the demon practicality
I assessed the best way to get from one end of it to the other without breaking a limb
in the shortest amount of time.
Lauren saw a pirate ship.
Within minutes, I had been shown to my “cabin”
and we were sailing the ocean blue
Firing off our canons, and searching the horizon for other ships.
I hear that youth is wasted on the young
I say life is often wasted on grown ups!
I want to see pirate ships in a mess of metal
And fairies on buttercups
So go….find the magic – it is still waiting for you everywhere
You left- it did not!
And that’s poetiquejustis
