Minden Future Poem

100 years from now ....

By the first and second grade multi-age class of Sharon Chappell and Janell Sheets (AKA "Chapeets") at Minden Elementary School.

We think ...

Broccoli will taste like candy

And never-melting ice cream will be handy.

Candy will replace the vegetable food group

And hot chocolate will make a very good soup.

We think ...

Jet-powered backpacks will take us to school

And snowboards that fly will be really cool.

Pencils will do your homework for you

And a "human wash" will clean you, too.

We think ...

There will be self-cleaning clothes

And jet-powered shoes to cover your toes.

We'll wear cell phone pants and a radio belt;

Cooler clothes we'll never have felt.

We think ...

Traveling to school by monorail or flying bus

Will be really fun for all of us.

Moving sidewalks that go up and down

Will take us through Minden ... that's our town.

We think ...

Edible homework will be yummy

And a delicious snack for our tummy.

The "Helmetnizer" will teach us so fast

And pencils that do all our work will be such a blast.

We might be wrong or we might be right.

In the year 2106 it will be quite a sight.

In 100 years, it might look like space,

But Minden will still be a wonderful place.
