Ode to a playground

A place from your past or childhood, one that you’re fond of, is destroyed. Write it a memorial.

Ode to the Portola Hills Playground
Which stood so tall in the sand.
Replaced by Plastic and wood chips
that get stuck in children’s hands.

Ode to the Portola Hills Playground
Twirly slide with a strong stench of pee.
Un-matching pieces crudely bolted together
complete with rickety balancing beam.
