Beyond Our Solar System.
Far beyond our solar system
In the reaches of outer space
Theres a planet where time goes backwards
It's a most perculiar place
A place where birds climb into their shells
And leaves flutter up into the trees
The clouds suck rain from out of the ground
And the rivers flow out of the seas
The cooks wash up at the start of a meal
And unpeel the spuds so I'm told
Your dinner goes into the oven
And comes out all nice and cold
On building sites, They start with a house
And take it apart, brick by brick
At lunch time they spit our their rolls
( And it looks as if they're being sick )
At petrol pumps they take fuel out of cars
And footballs not much of a laugh
The match ends with both teams at zero
And they start by having a bath
You know somethings goods going to happen
Because everyone starts to cry
And people, they all get much younger
And they greet you by saying "goodbye".
Author's Notes:
This poem has absolutely nothing to do with me whatsoever it was written by my grandaughters Shauna and Megan aged 12 and 10 respectively, they have asked me to post it for them to see what kind of reaction it would receive so please feel free to leave your opinion. Thankyou.

Very imaginative indeed. They'll make a good pair of fictional writers!

 Wow... now this is real talent.. your lovely grand daughters do have the gift of writing with such skill of words that become vivid... Tell them to always write and to write with great passion for life... I do hope they bless us with more poetry..

This is absolutely fantastic!!! Your grand daughters certainly picked up writing  skills from their grandfather! Magnificent! 

Shauna and Megan, keep writing! You come from a rich background of writing prowess...and it will only grow stronger as you write.

Hugs to all of you!
