Riding a Ferris Wheel
Who doesn’t like a Ferris wheel, a toy beyond compare,
that starts you at the bottom, then lifts you to heaven’s air?
Circling ‘round yet static, Ferris wheels are but a token
of our aspirations that repeat until they’re broken.
If I could ride a Ferris wheel the rest of my existence,
I’d style myself a pilot who’s addressing wind resistance.
