Everyone’s from Somewhere Else

by Kenn Nesbitt
Phoenix came from Dallas.
Dallas came from Austin.
Austin came from Lowell.
Lowell came from Boston.


Carolina came from Georgia.
Georgia’s from Savannah.
Savannah came from Jackson.
Jackson’s from Montana.


Virginia came from Maryland.
Mary’s from Dakota.
Dakota’s from Saint Paul.
And Paul’s from Minnesota.


Madison is from Cheyenne.
Cheyenne is from Nebraska.
I wonder where the teacher’s from?
I think maybe Alaska.
