I CHOOSE THE FASTEST LOOKING HORSE

I CHOOSE THE FASTEST LOOKING HORSE
MUSCULAR YET SLEEK IN SHAPE
WITH A FIXED LOOK OF DETERMINATION
A BODY OF BRIGHT COLORS 
AND A SADDLE AND BLANKET TO MATCH

I HOLD ON TIGHT 
THE CAROUSEL MOVES
AROUND AND AROUND
THE MUSIC CONTINUOUSLY PLAYS ON 
AS MY HORSE GOES UP AND DOWN IN PLACE

THE WORLD AROUND ME CONTINUES TO CHANGE 
I KIND OF SEE IT 
VIEWING IT AT A TANGENTIAL ANGLE
FROM THE CORNER OF MY HORSE
FROM THE CORNER OF MY EYE

AS I GO AROUND AND AROUND
AT A CONSTANT SPEED 
THE WORLD SEEMS TO MOVE 
IN A CHAOTIC WAY
I HOLD ON TIGHT 

I PULL ON THE REINS
AND I AND EVERYTHING AROUND ME 
SEEMS TO COME TO A HALT
EXCEPT THE WORLD 
WHICH SEEMS TO BE OUT OF CONTROL
AND MOVES ON
