MY LITTLE HAMLET
Yes, my hamlet is Hankerberry Grove,
small town on the Eustace-Mare River.
Some king long back tried taking exile
here, but he sunk into the ground; the
area of swamp on the east end is deadly.
The shacks which once were there, from
the late 1800's have been preserved now
in plasticene, and tours are given for those
who are keen - or may be - on seeing
such a preserve Little ladies with handbags
come in groups and chatter; postcards
are served cold, on a fantasy platter.
Oh well, I guess it's all good enough,
and I really do like it here.
