‘Found Among The Shelves’
by Peter Jackson
“I’ve found a secret hideaway,
A magic fairyland,
A place where I can ride away
On horseback across the sands,
Live the life of a highwayman
Or kill an evil witch,
Then save the kingdom from aliens
And end up super rich.
That place is the public library,
Adventure here is free,
But it’s also a peaceful sanctuary
Where I can just be me.”
