Home of Rhett & Link fans - the Mythical Beasts!

A kid in the back of an old Chevy truck
Stares out in wonder to a world he calls "Up"
Over the hills and down winding, steep roads
His imagination takes flight and away it goes

Behind sea green eyes blaze a trail of places
With old, ragged cowboys and rodeo clown faces
In towns with odd names that never found it to maps
Where adventure beckons on past the brims of old hats

A kite and a key on a dark, dark, dark night
A first apprentice to the first brothers on the first manned plane flight
Up, up and away in a hot air balloon
Touching down and taking step one onto the moon

One small step for man, a giant leap, there he goes
Balancing the ever growing length of Pinnochio's nose
"Walk the plank!" on a pirate ship of a pirate most feared
That now our young hero has bravely commandeered

Traversing rock after rock through a Hawaiian lava flow
Dodging great boulders and rapids while navigating the Colorado
Whizzing down a mountain on a bike nicknamed "Chance"
Commanding a triumphant victory at the Tour de France

In a wagon headed west down the Oregon trail
Riding shotgun with the Pony Express delivering mail
Miles and miles ridden, but no time to slow down
Because tomorrow the great World's Fair comes to town

A sudden blast from that old Chevy's horn
Brings him back from the place where imagination is born
Back to the bed of that old pickup truck
Back from an 8 second ride on an old bronking buck

The old Chevy truck turns onto a worn out old road
Worn out and tired, the boy is glad to be home
Adventuring all day is a serious undertaking
When one is to become a great adventurer in the making

Laying his head on his pillow, he closes his eyes
Eager for a new adventure surprise
As he drifts into dream town, the day comes to an end
And in the morning the adventure starts all over again

@ Kyle - - although there is no individual tab for BLOG in the main menu, it is one of the options in the drop-down menu of BEAST KREATIONS along with pics/photos and videos.

@ Lori - - your blog post is fine, as this is the proper forum to showcase your creations. Things posted in FORUM are intended to be more of an open discussion and not a "presentation" for comment, as you have here. If you're looking for more comments and feedback, perhaps from a more distinct target audience, then I'd suggest joining and posting on the group pages for Poet's Corner or Writers

There! I posted it! Oh, that was a little nerve wracking......

Got it. Thanks for the tip! I am still trying to find my way through this mythical land.

Well..... It is basically the same thing as a blog post (which this is) but more people tend to see that than this because there is a 'Discussions'/ 'Forum' tab. There isn't a blog tab. The only way to view this is from recent activity, or clicking a tiny button on a corner of a page.

Is that a thing? I would just start a new discussion and post my stuff?

You should post these under forum/discussions instead of blog. More people will get to enjoy them!
