He was lost in the weeds of Neverland
Just drowning in that green
Tried to remember where he was
As he munched on magic beans
Reached for a vine that was hanging down
Thought he'd swing around and  sway
Lost his stand  on moving ground
As a turtle walked away
Fell backwards into quicksand
Down and down he sunk
Add to his woes in Neverland
He was mooned by a passing skunk
Rescued by a yank and shake
From the quicksand by a yellow snake
Who pulled him close for a forked tongue kiss
But he scared him off with a swampy hiss
Lost his clothes in Neverland
Wove a sheath of leaves
Some fell off, as he slowly tanned
He was a weave
Learned to speak to lions
Sang along with orangatangues
Flew with birds of paradise
As he forgot his name


Felt sort of free in Neverland
Didn't work or drive a car
Lost in the weeds of Neverland
You part with who you are
(c)A Pax 2006

Last stanza should be on a plaque. The whole poem is good, O' talented one. :-) And that skunk, great allusion to the b*tch slaps of life. ~~Nordette

Goodness Pax . . .
Where in the world do these little gems come from?

I'm thinking you recieved some creative wisdom when you had dinner and wine with the grays on Thursday?

The last line Anita: "You part with who you are" to me changed the entire gist of the poem.

I became aware suddenly of life as a series of loses and how we often, to keep some semblance of sanity, have to laugh and shrug at the passing of time and what it does to our minds and bodies.

Whimsical and wonderful write (could even pass on some of the inferences to Michael Jackson's Neverland thats for sure.
Well done

Unbelievably clever...meant to be read and read again. I agree, asde from the immediately pleasurable reaction to this write, I do find some interesting commentary on man. You go girl!

I agree with Jerry do a book! This is magical whinsical poetry with an underlying message to ponder! Your unique mind and humor are a treasure, Anita!

Ps Been meaning to tell you I'm so glad your son is home!Great news and please thank him for me for serving his country so well, under such confused and divided circumstances!There are many who appreciated it!

"...and in the end, the love you take is equal to the love you make" seems to have the same meaning as I interpret this from the last line. Drifting has it's uses but taken to extreme leaves one at the mercy of everything and everyone around him. Still, as nothing is wasted in my opinion, he did come away with knowledge and certain skills tho he forgot his name. To me, this is a serious write about human nature wrapped in whimsy. A puzzle if you will. And maybe I'm not making any sense at all, lol. You are an original, Anita...
