Poem Meme

_samalander did a meme where we're supposed to post a poem if we see it. She wrote a poem for it, which I thought was doubly cool, even though it was a joke, so I am going to do the same.

When you see this meme, post a poem to your Livejournal

Or write your own! Or ignore it, whatever. Here's mine:

They'll take no notice if you cry despair.
It takes more weight to bruise a paradigm.
So take a match to castles in the air.

They left us to the woods; the cupboard's bare.
We'll follow trails of breadcrumbs as we climb.
They'll take no notice if you cry despair.

The gates are barred and locked; the golden stair
Is left to fail the test of creeping thyme.
So take a match to castles in the air.

And if we starve, who's left to know or care?
"Come in," she said,"the gingerbread's sublime."
They'll take no notice if you cry despair.

No matter how she combs or plaits her hair,
She's paying still for someone else's crime.
So take a match to castles in the air.

The verse is laid down with a certain flair.
It speaks to reason but still makes no rhyme.
They'll take no notice if you cry despair.
So take a match to castles in the air.
