What would you do for adrenaline?
Speed along uneven country roads,
Aim just right for that special ****,
Fly upward unexpectedly,
Drop back down with a thump?
Sweat in a long queue,
Strap oneself in tight,
Fly up and spin around,
Drop to earth from a great height?
Pay for an airplane,
Add a parachute,
Create a new route?
The great lengths some will go,
Simply for a rush of adrenaline,
But what would you do for adrenaline from these?
Misplacing a wallet,
Racing to its last known location,
Discovering a stranger took it,
Wondering if it will ever return home?
Driving placidly along,
Missing by an inch a hit headlong,
Hoping the car behind will stop?
Why pay hundreds to risk life and limb by diving through the sky, yet do anything to keep one’s wallet?
Both produce adrenaline;
one for free with no risk of life and limb, yet it’s the riskier one,
that’s sought even at great cost!
Perhaps it’s because:
adrenaline is best enjoyed when expected?
What do you think? Is my theory valid?
