both dream and nightmare

Gatlinburg is a child’s dream,
and an adult’s nightmare—

I think of Turkish Delight in Narnia:
a delicious treat that ensnares Edmund,
and helps make the evil queen seem nice,
and the problems of the realm not his for worry,

but, oh, for now,
how sweet a treat it is!

by Henry H. Walker,
with thanks to Zoey Martinek and Nancy Kelly for initial concept,
plus, thanks to Google images for Gatlinburg at night.
