Fantasy vs. Our Real World, A Poem by Julia

Dungeons and dragons and ogres and knights,
Unicorns and castles and torches for lights.
Basements and chickens and electricity,
Horses and houses and of course, geometry.
Some may go on a quest to rescue a maiden from her tower,
But some, like me, are happy as can be writing poems hour after hour.
Some go on quests to become a knight,
But some, like me, will read in a chair in the light.
Some go on a quest much too hard
For a girl like me, who climbs trees in her yard.
I think I like our real world more,
For who wants to be covered in guts and gore,
battling a dragon lying dead on the floor??
Who would want to is a mystery,
but me, thank you, I'm happy as can be,
safe in my chair, safe in my house,
reading a book about a dragon and a mouse.

I went into McDonald's yesterday and said, "I'd like some fries." The girl at the counter said, "Would you like some fries with that?"
