Labyrinth World

Lovely ladies of the Labyrinth world,
Give us your attention, or at least your gaze.
Why just stand there glassy handed,
With lip shaped trumpets baying at the moon?

Don t you know there are
Encyclopedias, novels, coloring books and comic books
Filed perfectly away on the multi colored shelves
Of our orb shaped cranial libraries.

Some of them have pages stained by tears,
Others have hearing aids in their dog ears,
Many with aces up their sleeves,
And all with an introduction on their inside front.

You many worry they are spineless and not worth the read,
But unless you peer inside their covers,
You will never know who will sweep you out of your slippers
And take you to that bliss you feared might only be in movies.
