Bathing in Riches This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

By
Start the water.
Plug the drain.
A man-made ocean;
Dig through the toy bin –
A ship, an angelic duck,
A bandit mallard.

Add the bubbles.
And dive in
To find the buried treasure
Before tsunamis
Wash it away.

Raging waves
And sea foam,
No match for this ship.
It takes on water,
Sinks
To the sandless sea floor.

Now it’s a race;
Outlaw to angel
Winner takes all
The glory.
An age-old rivalry
Challenged by opinion
Never to be concluded.
