Bubble Gum

Written by: Susan Burd

I found a piece of bubble gum
Hid underneath my lamp.
It must have been stuck under there
When I came home from camp.

I popped it in, began to chew;
At first it was real dry.
But it became so sweet and warm,
And sure was worth the try.

That hidden piece gave me a thrill
As I began to blow,
And looked into the mirror as
I had a bubble show.

I blew two, sweet enormous orbs
That shimmered as they grew,
But then they popped and dropped straight down,
And landed on my shoe.

I guess this piece still needs some time;
I’ll wait until its gold.
Anyone knows it blows best
When it’s near six months old!
