Day 29 -- NaPoWriMo 2019 - What, when, how, if, why?? -- A Monday Poem for You

When I wonder;

When I wonder how it would feel
like to be squashed by a Giant
I think of me squashing an errant ant 

When I wonder ... 

When I wonder what the wonders
of the world were like in their day
Colossus of Rhodes--think of Kids Artwork 

When I wonder what it'd be like
to smoke a joint of Mary Jane
If it were legal when I might have tried 

When I wonder when one should yield
grow old and gray and act that way

When I wonder ...

 - I'm not an expert but I do have a couple of encyclopedia supplements called The Book of Wonders (1920's and 1960's editions).  And I have visited five of places of the Seven Wonders of the (Ancient) World (google search) but not to the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus or the Hanging Gardens of Babylon (ISIS has probably recently destroyed this one) and four of the New 7 Wonders.
 - Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (again from google search, above)
  • ☆Great Pyramid of Giza, the only one that still exists.
  • ☆Colossus of Rhodes.
  • Hanging Gardens of Babylon.
  • ☆Lighthouse of Alexandria.
  • ☆Mausoleum at Halicarnassus (present Bodrum, Turkey)
  • Statue of Zeus at Olympia. 
  • ☆Temple of Artemis at Ephesus.
