#CCC155 & Other Challenges 10-27-21 The Ferris Wheel

Walking to the Midway at the carnival this night

Looking overhead at the moon so big and bright

Restless on the way to ride the Ferris wheel of fright

A barker hollers, “Come and play” catching us in flight

We stop in our tracks to try our luck but all of us did fail

Caring not, we run ahead and catch the crowded trail

Getting on at last, we begin the exciting ride to the sky

A better look upon the moon is pleasing to our eye.

It’s what we came for actually

To get the ultimate glance

Because as kids, we realize

This is our very best chance

We have no telescopic lens and

Our stature is so short

To see the moon atop this ride

Was our only vantage point.

And so we saw it, just in time

As wispy clouds moved in

Just as the ride ended

It was covered up again.

So if you’re just a kid like us

And want to see the sight

Of the moon on a clear yet

Somewhat cloudy, spooky, fun-filled night

Go to a carnival or fair

And catch the Ferris wheel

From there you’ll get your wish tonight

It’s really your best deal.
