For this week's prompt, write a poem about how things change. The world is always changing in small and large ways. Businesses start up and go out of business or move locations. There are baby announcements and obituaries. There are floods, droughts, etc. And, of course, even this blog changes with a new prompt every week.

Here's my attempt:

"Woody's"

It sounds a bit crazy, I know,
but right there was a restaurant
stretched completely over the road.
It sounds a bit crazy, I know,
but I once worked over that road
as a busboy at that old haunt.
It sounds a bit crazy, I know,
but right there was a restaurant.
