As a starry eyed kid

I was conditioned to

believe in Neverland.

And so, pirates have

had special value

ever since the movie

every year for years.

Particularly fond now

of the Carribean



Pan and Hook

and the lost boys

perpective of the first

nation, I ate it all

and downed it with

Neverland juice.


A movie with few

women or girls in it,

I liked Tinker Bell

the best. I clapped

and so did you.

Fairy dust would be

insensitive now,

not politically

correct. Still, back

in the day, you could



Today's kids

would be bored. Not

enough FX. I

never got all

the way through

the remake.

Hats and scarves and giant checkers for buttons eyes and smile. Twigs for arms and I'm a kid again! Happy Holidays. Make some Christmas! - allets -
