Land Mines - A Rhyming Prep to Watch Your Step!


Land Mines -
A Rhyming Prep to Watch Your Step!

There is an eagle in me
that wants to soar,
and there is a hippopotamus in me
that wants to wallow in the mud.

Carl Sandburg
(1878 – 1967)

We live beside a danger zone,
So watch before you tread.
And when the grass is overgrown,
The obstacles embed.

Bare feet are not advisable,
As everybody knows,
And things unrecognizable
May seep between your toes.

We live out in the countryside,
Where animals are found.
So watch before you slip and slide
And step over that mound!
