Paradise Truly Is A Small World After All.--- For the victims of 9/11

Paradise Truly Is A Small World After All.

. © -MFB-June 2002



We took

your place

in every line,

on our trip

to Disneyland .


All summer more

good folks will come

and in your absence stand.

As thousands claim

where you'd have been,

most will not comprehend,

thier place in line was "yours",

if life had just gone on as planned.



See that mother

so much like you,

holding tight to her child's hand,

smiling down at her young daughter,

giggling at this wonderland.

Children dance

and leap through fountains,

while their parents show delight,

Indian, Egyptians,

Pakistani's, Israelites.

Here's a kid down from Ohio,

with a younger Afghan boy,

chasing Zeti from the Congo,

laughing....splashing...sharing joy.

There's a Vietnamese toddler,

playing with a veteran's kid

neither one of them have knowledge,

of just what the 60's did

German, French, Russian and English,

cavort with Asians at their side,

Irish, Middle Eastern, Blackfoot,

in a land where hate's denied

We take your place in every line,

just as you all might have done,

when your families were not incomplete,

before the acts of 911

The world goes on as usual,

but your places will remain ,

here in paradise and everywhere,

to mark the awful pain,

of the day life went insane.

Drizzlyland!

Grey skies above,

with more gray moods below,
the only bright spots

are those sun yellow parkas,
scattered round as the rain

falls on each uncovered place.

Beneath vast yards of plastic,

sad eyes hooded in shadows,
huddle damp, grumbling masses

in an all day downpour.

Getting soaked for thier tickets,

'cause it's raining on their dimes,
as it cancels parades,

now they feel like a Dumbo.

Looking ever so Goofy,

spending hundreds of dollars,
forty more for rain parkas,

nature's slipped them a Mickey,
Thier days pleasure is Minnie......


"But, Hey!!!!
Welcome to Drizzlyland!!!"


Where you wish that Jurassic
was a wee bit more dry.
