Poise on Parade


How I loved that grand parade:

(Although I could have

Used some shade)


The marching bands, the clubs, the floats,

(The politicians

Seeking votes),


The waterguns, the kids, the fun,

(I really parched

Out in the sun),


Standing up I showed respect,

For veterans

Whose lives affect.




With the crowd I loudly cheered.

My adult poise

Soon disappeared:


Excited for a Tootsie Roll;

I chased it down.
