Smile #12: CARNIVAL RIDE

written for Poets United's Poetry Pantry #264

oh, oh you so fly
you are lifted to the skies
from you comes an excited cry
as you go on a carnival ride

you are the king of the world
you are the coolest guy
smile you own this world
you are looking fine.

up, up you fly
strapped to your seat so tight
less you fall and surely die
as you go on a carnival ride

you are the king of the world
you are loving life!
smile you own this world
you are gonna be fine

live for the moment
push all hurts aside
smile it's your moment
what an exciting carnival ride!

  1. This works perfectly as a metaphor - but also pictured getting on a roller coaster as an adult and all those questions that run through our mind like 'is it safe!' that perhaps children don't even consider...
