Back When - Poem by Eddie Morales
I knew of a place in the Land of OZ,
So I ran down its winding, yellow brick road;
Knew the wonderland of Alice's dream,
And learned of a princess who kissed a toad.
I knew Humpty Dumpty would crack sooner or later,
While Rapunzel struggled to comb her hair.
It wasn't easy raising children in a shoe,
Which a little old woman found more than she could bear.
But these magical lands, these wondrous sights,
Are not what helped me to cope and survive.
Oh, no. It was Dad, the fabler himself, who took me there,
Back when, my tale-weaver was still alive.
