Hinkie by Academy Monthly

He took the road less traveled,

Disobeying the Do Not Enter sign

From this World. Upon traveling this road

Boosrained from all over, but

These boos were not aware of His jewel.

As He traveled the road, he valued the journey,

Not the destination. Hinkie’s injured jewel was followed

By unearthing various diamonds on the overlooked roadside.

Many other cars, the traffic-filled road,

Populated His car with stragglers for small compensation.

Before his objects deteriorated, he sent them to the other cars,

And the boos continued to fall. For many, His car doors revolved

Like those of a fancy hotel lobby, with various rocks pouring in and out.

But throughout all of the chaos, the Process was Trusted.
