"Either write somehting worth reading, or do something worth writing."-Benjamin Franklin

About the poisnewood tree
Father still didn't know
About the things we did not know
no one cares
On the Nommo
God turned his back
Mommy, Mommy
That's all I say
If you look at the world sideways
It is a better place
My lost winds
Don't ask me how I'll get them back
A fearsome place
To sink or swim.

The author's comments:
This is inspired by the poem "Lost Generation" (look it up on YouTube) and If you read this poem line by line backwards, it also makes sense. It helps if you have read the book Poisenwood Bible by Barabara Kingsolver.
