Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
In a far away tiny land, I forgot its name
there was this story of a girl and a boy
so terribly poor that it was a shame
for they never got single little toy.
They would use anything to improvise
with rich imagination only kids possess
so let following serve as a little surprise
what was their game you wouldn't guess.
And neither could that man passing by
seeing line of sheep crap on the ground
lined up from smallest to big and now dry
on a nearby meadow so plenty to be found.
So he asked the kids what was the game
they just shrugged with faces being blank
saying how they had not given it a name
but those were soldiers lined by the rank.
Now all curious and amused was the man
amazed as they knew all from corporal up
reciting them excitedly like only kids can
from smallest to biggest piece of the crap.
Only the highest rank was not there
Commander in Chief slipped their mind
but they said they had looked everywhere
but such a big piece of crap they couldn't find.
