A city sight I sometimes spy
Floats, barely moving, in the sky.
It seems cartoonish in its shape
And causes everyone to gape.

It circles slowly, like a shark,
To locate what it’s meant to mark:
A football game or tennis match
Or clash its cameras hope to catch.

Its mission’s not a mystery;
It’s up there strictly for TV,
In silent slither through the skies
To search for scoops with raptor’s eyes.

Reporters on the ground bring news
But they don’t have those sky-high views;
For aerial’s the way to go
When you are putting on a show.

And we who watch, indoors or out,
Enjoy its journey, there’s no doubt.
I’m glad the networks do not skimp
When they have access to a blimp.

    I wasn't to sure if this was going to be about a large person and sports with the title Blimp as that is what we so cruelly use to describe them here, love it we get a lot over us and I would love to go in one. Well done. xx

    Oh, there is something about all things that fly, yes? We see tons of hot air balloons where we live. One morning one traveled very close to our apartment building and it was magical for BOTH my daughter and I. I really enjoyed this smile maker poem of yours. And thank you for your kind words.
