How come you get to be Dorothy?

How come you get to be Dorothy?


The Scarecrow asked

Amazed while

Turning to the others


It’s not because

I’m a girl she answered

Sensitive to his feelings


The Lion had gone

Back to work while

The Tin Man listened


I need to learn home

Is not about the rules

Dorothy continued


The Tin Man

Smiled and touched

His loving heart


You don’t need

All the right people

To have a home


Now the Lion bravely

Listened as he

Knew this to be true


Home is accepting

And understanding

A safe place to fall


Oh said the Scarecrow

I knew that

I didn’t Dorothy replied


Welcome home
