Balloon left to wind,
Swept away, released to sky
Held on for longer.
This blue balloon given to the wind
Was swept away and sucked up by the sky
I expected to hold on for a little more time.
It seems like adults are complicit in the
Nobody ever lets you in on the big joke,
You just figure it out and then become
complicit too. The massive in-joke system of
Flashed white teeth and pink bra straps,
Danced or didn’t,
Spoke out or held up.
The big joke. You already know it.
You can laugh at it or not,
it’s not really very funny but
If you can’t laugh at it,
You’ll probably die in the end.
You will anyway. That’s the joke. Get it?
