First Place - TRW Creative Writing Contest

It was a bright, cold day in April
and the clocks were striking thirteen
a cat was howling at the lazy sun
while the children waded into the warm arctic water
as their mothers watched and sipped warm coca-cola
the fathers were off at their normal jobs
fishing for pandas
the sun goes down quickly
as the iceberg community goes back to their homes
made of Lego's
as they greet their pet grizzly bears
and feed him walrus tongue and birds feet
then they settle in for their meal of fried worms
outside a flying seal pecks at the house
and the family laughs
and goes into their comfortable beds
made of marshmallows
while they count penguins
as they fall into a deep sleep
