Amusement parks are fun for games–
games of chance, shooting water balloons.
Balloons are twisted into animals for children.
Children want to go on every ride.
Rides are not my thing. Never,
never could comprehend the thrill of fright.
Fright belongs in movies and books. I prefer carousel.
Carousels are painted bright colors, and cheerful music plays,
plays as you sit on horses, riding.
Riding painted horses and holding on.
On a sunny Spring day, pick a horse, go ’round and ’round.
