The car door opened The first thing I saw Was an explosion of balloons, More than I’d ever seen In my entire nine-year life. For the first time We were at the fair I leapt from the car Feet running before They hit the ground, Knowing I had to see Everything, Do Everything, Taste Everything In just two hours Before the long trip home And, I did!! The drive home was filled With dizzying, dazzling, Stupefying memories of Excitement, movement, Colors, noise, Tastes, People, Rides. I had taken in As much as I could As fast as I could Leaving scarcely room For a breath Now I finally let it all out By throwing up In the back seat With a loud, “Brrraaaggghh!! As he pulled the car over My father mumbled, “Never again”, My mother whispered, in reply “Never again”, I scarcely heard them As I shouted, “When can we go again??”!!
