Teddy Bear blasted
off into space
to taste the cheesey moon .

But he forgot
to tie his shoe

Grandma’s yard was neatly kept

Flowers decked the lawn

And nothing quite stood out so grand

As Grandma’s world at dawn.

She’d sit there in the breeze

To feel it touch her face.

Grandma’s house was neatly kept

Keepsakes stood here and there

The Dawn,
Here with only the
Faintest lights of morning.

Everyday, it’s the same thing,
Wake up, get ready, leave, come back.
I want something different to come about.
I want the world to turn upside down!!
