I know this is likely an innocent poem about some kids playing a game at a party, but something about the blindfolds and going around and around (I imagine faster and faster, dizziness, disorientation), and then the word 'explosion' which connotes harm and danger.. I don't suppose any of this was intended?

Jeremy, I can see how you could think that way, but no it was just an innocent little "bat and pinada birthday party". I suppose the words I used like "explosion" doesn't bode well with blindfolds and disorientation... in any case I'm still pleased you got an image from it even if it's not the one I had expected.

lol! I'm sure that this scene was extremely scary to watch. (I just don't trust kids with bats, haha)
