The Carousel
by: Imacutpi

Up, Down, Up, Down,
The ride has begun.
Up, Down, Up, Down,
Wow, isn�t this fun.
Up, Down, Up, Down,
Ok, that�s enough.
I�m ready to get off.
Up, Down, Up, Down,
This isn�t so fun anymore.
I see the beaming faces of the crowd.
They know not of my displeasure,
Accepting the gilded exterior,
They fail to prod the surface.
They laugh: pointing, waving, snapping photos.
I�m screaming now, but my cries are being suffocated
By the deliberate howl of the pipe organs.
"Look at her. She�s so LUCKY! I wish I could have that life,"
They think to themselves as they cock their heads and long dreamily.
She�s spinning faster now
Up, Down, Up, Down, Up, Down, Up, Down
She despairingly tries to jump off but she�s hooked.
She wants nothing more than to give up.
She buries her head in her arms and cries,
Cries right down to her core.
