Camping on the Lost Road   Poem  
Creators: Elizabeth Barrette (Writer), Ellen Million (Patron), Ellen Million (Inspiration)
The Lost Road is an important landmark.
Posted: 09/13/12      [No comments yet] ~ 76 words.
 

This is the old road, the Imperial folly,
the road that the jungle took back.
Tours still go to the visible bits,
and you can get a license to camp there,
if you dare to spend the night.

There are no sea monsters this far inland,
no time crystals to misalign and cause a hazard.
You can hear the jungle plotting, though,
its slow green fingers creeping to pull apart
all that men have ever made.

Author's Notes

This poem came from the July 2012 Muse Fusion.
