Pixie Dust Paradigm
Tom Viall

Blame blame blame blame, blame-
Blame everyone without shame.
But
Especially old people.

What with their dentures,
And canes,
And hearing aids-
They don't aid them
Enough to be worth much of
Anything.

I'm never getting old-
That's what I've been told
By mad scientists paid with lots of gold.

In Neverland
There's no place for
Old
Old people.

We can fly with the gusts with our
Faith and pixie dust
While Hook is down on the
Lower level
Just above crocodile home
With his cane-wielding devils.

You can't
Reach me-
You can't reach me with that cane,
Old man.
The scientists claim
I'll stay young
Forever
In Never
Neverland.
