Oz Borns

tin_manOz never gave the Metal Man

mettle

but he did

find it at a souvenir stand there,

and Dorothy got a wicked

pair of vintage kicks

–made for walking

(and her little dog, too)

but where was she even going?

(her next shin-dig)

everyone knows you wear slippers around the house,

and the straw man,

well, the straw man 

he was proven liar

by his very instance

–albeit a clever one—

now wasn’t he…

while the lion

(rahr, the lion)

might have whiled away

his fearful existence in peace,

a dream away a dream away

had not that trio happened upon him

and taught him he was

afraid.
