What The Popped Balloon Said
Reader Star Rating:
Excuse me for the mess please,
But I don't feel very well;
My parts are now in pieces,
And I've lost my outer shell.
I was so big and shiny
With my string the other day;
But now I feel all shriveled up,
As on the ground I lay.
I was so fun to play with
Bobbing up and down a bit;
While friends would bounce me higher,
Giving me a shove or hit.
But now I'm feeling yucky
As I'm on the ground right now;
I haven't felt myself since I
Went suddenly ... KER-POW!!!
