PROMPT #260 – THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME
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.
