So Long Dorothy

Poetic Bloomings


So Long, Dorothy

She came, unbidden, pleading

for things I could not give her.

This unwelcome one upset

the balance of our green city

leaving destruction and uprising

in her wake. Filled with hubris,

the small girl ruined my good name –

then just as quickly disappeared,

never looking back at the consequences

of her actions on those she abandoned.

Good and evil continue to do battle.

Munchkins keep searching for equality.

Lions and Tinmen and Scarecrows forget

their strengths lie within.
