"There's No Place Like Home"

Updated: Nov 27, 2020

Somewhere over the rainbow

can be found,

when you click your heels together.

Like when you were a child,

petting your dog Toto

for the first time was exciting.

But somewhere along the way

the emerald city,

became a burned out shell fast.

The ruby red slippers got tarnished

in the poppy field of life,

compassion was replaced by an emoji.

Embraces are needed in mankind,

when a tornado

whisks you away to a Kansas farm.

Or do we need to communicate

to get the flying monkeys,

and wicked witch off of our backs.

Stop the killing on the yellow brick road,

maybe then, Kansas

will be fine, ruby red slippers or not.
