the petite protester

Originally uploaded by zavodk
Last month, just a bit after Halloween, we headed up to our local firehouse to do a bit of protesting. It seems the Philadelphia budget can not handle the added expense of a firehouse for the local residents. Milo and I felt we needed to stand with our neighbors and give the city a little what-for about our safety!

On Thanksgiving Day, on our ride to Delaware, we were chatting about poetry, and I decided to read a bit of recently written poetry....
Milo listened attentively, and than said he had a poem,
which I happily and almost speedily wrote down word for is his first poem....

::spoken in a young robert frost, dedicated to the moment but not caught up in pretense::

Milo's Poem
or Untitled

Snow comes cold
than it landed-
it all pieces
the barn snowed in
ice was breaking when it was snowing
the trees died, broke into pieces
the roadway snowed in and the trees were down
& on the road
& the cars can't go
electricity is down
the clouds fall
the monster trucks can't go through
more trees died & knocked telephone wires & collapsed
& the car antenea's were bended
& everything destroyed-even the house
electricty down,
kids couldn't play on the computer
grass going dead
chipmunks and squirrils hided in the burrow
& the signs went down and broke-collapsed
only the monster truck trains can go...

I hope you all enjoyed!
