Title: Don't Take My Hippie Crown
Author: Heather P.
My want-to-be Hippie Crown,
a mind and body of metal gold
and cotton balls puffed up with random beauty.
Tired and weak,
innocent of all of life's gifts.
I can not look to see but I know it's there anyways.
Inch by flying-falling inch to fall
down colossal stairs
only to try again and dive in.
Tug on my collar, World
and make me aware
of all I should be but don't
let me see . . .
. . . how you plan to do it.
It's just too cruel of you to take
away my crown and my
So leave here and I will ignore you in an all due polite manner.
Cause my Momma raised a good little girl,
but she also raised a trigger happy fiend,
watch out for your back and
I'll do the same with mine.
No one is gonna take my Hippie crown.
