An amusement park.
Placed off a rode in the middle of the country.
An oasis within corn and green,
The Ferrisweal was huge,
In the middle of the park,
Towering over everything else
Each car could fit four people.
They were red,
And decorated on the outside
With smiling circus animals.
A seal with a pink and white stripped tuxedo
A ball balancing on his nose
An elephant with a red hat
Running away from a mouse.
Lights on the bumper cars;
Glitter was infused into the paint to make them sparkle.
The hiss of electricity pulsed as they moved.
Lights on the games;
And one that read “strongest man” in bold letters
Lightning bolts came off of them
Offering big and small prizes
That children wanted
And girlfriends got.
The sound of games,
Loud repetitive music.
The smell of baked dough,
And powdered sugar.
Everything and everyone was in motion
Running from one place to another
Giant teddy bears with bow ties
Gold fish in bags.
But on the ground
There was no light but trash
Discarded food decomposed in a puddle
Dirt and soda
A Popsicle wrapper
Covered in grime read, “Good humor”
Turned brown in the combination of grape soda and dirt,
Covered in hair.
Paper plates just floated
In the black and purple grime.
I guess the light distracts us all sometimes.
If anyone can think of a better title tell me :) also criticisms are welcome any notes really.
