    Hello, the title was interesting because it made me wonder what was "upside down" and it made me think of my mum once telling me sarcastically that Australia was an upside down great Britain and I naively believed her, I was 6 at the time lol

    The world looks so much better
    When I’m hanging upside down
    The people all stand on their heads
    And smile instead of frown
    ^
    I love the imagery here. It makes me think of being little on the monkey bars and watching my mum smiling at me proudly but it looked as though she was sad because I was upside down ofcourse, so I once asked her why she was sad and she had to explain that she wasn't. It really is weird how a little mind works isn't it and what we actually remember too.

    The imagery in the 'upside down' poem is wonderful and makes you wonder just how weirdly wonderful the world would be if we were all walking in the sky and not on the ground.. Would the world be better or would it be much worse? A quirky yet extremely thought provoking piece.

    I hope you and your family are staying safe,
    Take care,

    What a lovely idea. I loved the images that this quirky poem conjured up. Particularly frowns turned upside down becoming smiles and the imagery of birds swimming in blue grass. Milly x
