Ronovan Décima Poetry Challenge #13
“True” In C rhyme line
In bright sun, the blue summer pool
A vinyl cooler, filled with a hose.
Hidden respite to shed some clothes
Dream of cold water I’m no fool.
This oasis is my jewel
A hidden scheme some say it’s true
Though it’s plastic we still make do.
Now jealous neighbors come around
It’s bought at Wal-Mart so they frown
So we wade and bid them adieu

No reason for mountain view
No answers for a sunrise

While I realize that the Covid-19 Virus is a real threat that is disrupting lives and putting people at risk, I can’t help but daydream of a new business. Looking out my window, I can see six unused outbuildings on my property.

Therefore, announcing my new business venture—

Have you been worried about the Corona Virus?
Do neighbors seem to be coughing more often?
Are you tired of long lines at grocery stores?
Have you been thinking about the possibility of an Armageddon?
Have you considered that you might not make the cut during the Rapture?
Do you like the idea of sharing your food with small animals?
Or maybe you’re just looking for a good place to self-isolate at a bargain price?
Come see our choice selection of shacks located in Southwestern Minnesota. Whether you looking for a weekend hide y-hole or a long-term hideaway, we have abandoned buildings and out of the way structures that may be perfect for you.
We have the best selection of small grain bins (with or without floors), chicken coops, hog sheds, and rustic pole barns. We guarantee no worries about telemarketers, wayward spirits, or neighborhood door-to-door salesmen, as these buildings have limited access to roads, bothersome power-poles, waterlines, or sewers.
Whether it’s short term, long term, or an eternity, we have leases options that could be perfect for you*.
Call CJ at FIL-THY-SHED for more information.
If you’re looking for a roof and not much more…
These sheds are out standing!
