Ruby Rings

Poetry By: aaihalbs

Okay, so it's the tin-man who has no heart, NOT the lion, but I couldn't work it in and I'm so frustrated about it! I mean, I can change lion to tin-man, but is just isn't the same. The tin-man gives the heebie-jeebies. Thanks for reading!

I've lost my heart,
I've lost my mind,
Neither of which
I wish to find.

I'm not the scarecrow,
I'm not the lion.
I'm poor little Dorothy,
Lost and crying.

Life's black and white,
But I dream in colour.
And a rainbow is nothing,
To all the others.

Thought and emotion
Got off three stops back.
Yet till this day,
There's nothing I lack.

I've got ruby rings,
And emerald shoes.
I can click my heels,
But it's no use.

I have no home,
I'm just bejewelled.
And magic's the drug
Of choice for fools.
