The Money Tree (Part Two)

Kelvin Cedeno

This is a humorous take on the old 'be careful what you wish for' scenario. PLEASE note that I had always intended for parts one and two to actually be part one of three segments. Since I've yet to work on my intended part two, Elfwood wouldn't accept my submitting my intended part one all by itself. Because of this, part one ends rather randomly. For my original desired effect, please read both parts in one sitting as they were meant to be. As soon as I add the rest of the story, these two parts will be edited to their original whole. Thanks!

a short poem

Megan McCarthy

Well... it's not actually fantasy/sci-fi in nature, exactly, but... but if you use your imagination... I think that it COULD be... and anyway, it was written about someone who is somewhat fantastical in nature, anyway, so maybe it counts after all... *grin*

Death (Poem)
