When Pigs Fly...

December 4, 2008
By Alexandria Huff, San Antonio, TX

I’ll surf the Pacific Ocean,
Fly to the moon and back.
I’ll bungee off a bridge,
And catch the Cheshire Cat.

I’ll climb a thousand mountains,
Sail the seven seas.
I’ll ice skate on the equator,
And face a swarm of bees.

Yet in the sky above my head,
I see a faded figure.
Oh, to realize what I dread,
My pink flying avenger.
