Fantasy World

Was it real or in a dream Wizards and kings, chocolate ice cream Dinosaurs roamed from early morn Flying zebras and a unicorn Dancing in the sky from star to star Travel the universe in a flying car Make believe ship manned by pirates and thieves And a tree that was covered with spearmint leaves No one cared about silver or gold We were children again who would never grow old There was a horse in the field talking to a mule My cat said horses can't talk, don't be a fool I told my cat that the prince once was a frog A firefly whispered your cat once was a dog The earth began rumbling but I took it in stride I just jumped on my rug for a magic carpet ride I stopped on a mountain when I reached the peak A polar bear asked me whom do you seek I reached for the bear and he began to smoke Then a penguin stopped by and told me a joke I flew back to earth when I heard a bell toll As fate would have it, I ran into a troll He huffed and he puffed and smiled and said Come have a conversation with my talking head The head was a monster but I wasn't afraid He said I'm getting a body as soon as I get paid Then I walked down a road that was red and yellow I noticed the shrubs were made of strawberry jello Suddenly a space ship landed from out of the sky In a field that was filled with banana cream pie This may be hard to believe but i swear that it's true As sure as my skin is green and my hair is blue.

I thought John Lennon was dead. This is incredibly fanciful imaginative material you have written here Vince. Your rhyming adds another dimension to the entire work.

A very delightful read. It'd be great as a book to read to children, too. Very imaginative and well put together!

So creative, Vince. Love the "talking head" monster, Smokey the polar bear and the witty penguin. This is a delightful flight of fantasy! Thanks so much for sharing it -- it was fun taking this "magic carpet" ride with you. Hope you and your family have a Happy Thanksgiving, Vince. Love, Carolyn
