flashing neon, loud music, exotic
sights, smells, sounds, enticements,
leering inducements of all sorts
adrenaline-pumping sensory overload
You know you shouldn’t overindulge
but you do and then you get sick
but what a ride, oh what a ride!
But by then it is way too late.
You are walking down the midway
woozy, but needing to eat
everything and nothing looks appetizing
you grab some cotton candy
No matter how hard you try to keep your
fingers clean, it is always a mess
a great, big, sticky, gooey,
– Mark L. Lucker
