Shadey Time’s

In The old day’s,
it was very
shadey. It is sunny
now. We don’t like
it now. It’s very
very hot      Today I wish
it were old times’


Many thanks to my six-year-old self, who clearly did not understand the proper use of apostrophes but correctly utilized the subjunctive.

  1. KHL says:

    My vote is poetic prose.

  2. Romgi says:

    I love the shady days!

  3. Slim Shady says:

    What’s really funny is that I immediately decided what this poem* is about: they cut down the tree in the front yard of the house where you & I grew up. It used to shade the front room quite nicely; after the tree was cut down, our house was very hot.

    Go Team Global Warming!

    * Because of its deep symbolism and the way you typed it out, it seems like a poem. But looking at the original writing, I’d say KHL is more accurate with the “poetic prose” label.

    Don’t you all wonder what the white bat is doing in the scene? I’m really curious about that…

  5. Romgi says:

    That is a bat? I thought it was a very angry dog. A dog that is angry at the tree.

  6. roni says:

    I guess it could be a dog, but to me it looks like a bat. Then again, I’ve seen what my version of a pterodactyl looks like, so really, this could be anything…

  7. Welcome to the Neighborhood says:

    It’s a little girl covered in motor oil, courtesy of the next-door-neighbor-boy.

  8. roni says:

    Well, I take it back. This could not be ANYTHING…because it is definitely not me!

    I still vote it’s an albino bat. Dunno why, but that’s what my intuition is telling me. Or maybe my memory. Whichever.

Be opinionated! We certainly are.
