In the southernmost state
is a magical realm
you may know it—but wait
there’s no mouse at the helm,

it’s a place of excitement
and affable fun
with just one indictment
a penchant to pun.

The trees will accost you
the springs warp your mind
there are ogres and harpies
and treasures to find

where a rude wizened gnome
with a snake-headed wife
will cause you to roam
to change your whole life,

your passage is all set
so do it today
you’ll never regret
this storied getaway.

so do it today-- indeed!

Sounds like a land
That I would surely go
Unless it costs a grand
Or more money to flow
