C. S. Lewis - Poem by Ben Gieske

C. S. Lewis knew all about Narnia,
a country somewhere beyond Sylvania.
There’s only one way to get there.
You have to hide in a wardrobe and scratch your hair.

But you shouldn’t want to go there.
An old, mean, wicked witch is living there.
Be careful when you’re hiding in a wardrobe.
If you itch be sure to pull your ear lobe.

    I love the Narnia stories, thanks for the wonderful memories.
    And maybe I am that witch. lol

    Nice - just reading it and I was transported to the world of my imagination.
    The wardrobe had a steering wheel but once it took off into the sky, it collided with the clouds because there were no traffic lights - made of stars of course****. and the moon)) served as the Navigator.
    Kind regards
