Xanth

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.

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