Day 24: The Nostalgic Prompt

by Stephanie Dogfoot

Write a poem about a place in Singapore that no longer exists.

Places could include: parks, any kind of buildings, libraries, malls, schools, restaurants, hawker centres, fast food chains/outlets, cemeteries, playgrounds, farms, sports complexes, mines, fields, forests, swamps, creeks, reservoirs, beaches, roads, shops, aquariums, tourist attractions, theme parks, cinemas, ponds, offices, and so on....

#DragonPlaygroundBonus: there is a mythical/fictional character (who is NOT Medusa/Icarus/Loki/Thor in the poem) #LochNessPlaygroundBonus: the character is a villain (who is NOT Medusa)
#BigfootPlaygroundBonus: you have never actually been to this place
#YetiPlaygroundBonus: the poem is (maybe) a little bit sad but it’s actually funny
