The Impossible  

One dark morning
While the Smithson's dozed
And the fields lay bear
Not a plant unfroze

There walked an old man
Barely trudging along
Sick as a dog
Wouldn't last too long
And with his last dying breath
He sang this song

"Take me away
To a place somewhere
When the children are evil
And the dining tables bare

Take me away
To the kingdom of fright
Where the ghouls sleep in
And zombies up all night

Hurry up and take me
Because I really wanna go
My body is growing limp
Frozen as the snow

So please don't make me
Ask you again
For lying here longer
Isn't apart of my plan

But my one last wish
Before my body seems to die
Is for piping hot ice cream
And some ice cold pie"

This song was heard
For many miles around
And these things laid in his casket
As he was lowered to the ground

No one quite knows how
The Smithson's did the impossible
Yet after they were done
They each had their own steaming cold bowl

Wow
Well done, though a little on the dark side for my taste. I hope this was just a poem and not an expression of your mood. Look up young lady the sky is not falling yet. Use your gift of writing to lift the mood and spirit of others. Sad can be a mood but I hope you enjoy life as well. I'm new here so forgive me if my rants are off line.
