The Library Book Drop

by adewpearl

The library book drop
is where it all ends -
it eats up the places
I made my new friends.

It gulps up a mouthful
of valleys and hills,
mysterious mansions
of cobwebs and thrills.

Are elephants roaming
the African plains
now giving the book drop
severe tummy pains?

I hate to imagine
the terrible fate
awaiting the book drop
if that's what it ate.

It munches on mountains,
and skyscrapers too,
and just now it swallowed
a whole pirate crew.

I bet it's not pleasant
when poked by a sword,
that wooden-legged pirates
have carried aboard.

I wonder if pirates
and elephants meet
when everything's swallowed
and day is complete.

I bet they all worry
'bout what I will plop
to add to the mix of
the library drop.


Many thanks so Miranda Signore for this photo of Sawyer as he returns his first ever library book to the local library.
