Rookie (Sedalia, Mo.)

A Classic


On young and restless heart imposed the 'carefull not to dream.'
A dream is just a dream. Another 'get in trouble thing.'
And why I held this thing so close, this task that I should bring.
For task is just a task without the gamble of a dream.

Ramble down this long and dusty. Rustle up a dream.
Relax and let your freedom ring, but carefull with this thing.
For all may witness up your task, to table you will bring,
What we shall call A Classic, now you've dreamed your dreamy dream.

    Just to note it is careful rather than carefull. However, great poem. I really like this line A dream is just a dream. Another 'get in trouble thing. - brilliant. (Report) Reply
