Mary

Es­capril 2019
Prompt: make it rhyme


I came clad in mul­ti­col­ored poly­ester,
Three bells on my hat like a jolly jester.
Dressed to im­press her, I took her on the roller­coaster.
On the drop, in dis­tress, she grabbed my hand and pulled me closer.
Made out naked on the fer­ris wheel wary: no sound.
Got spot­ted: now the boys all call her Mary-​Go-Round.
