This is going to be a blast!
If you want to find me first,
SLOW DOWN! Don't go so fast!
I’m within an easy reach this year.
But I’ve bonded with my home.
When you are ready to retrieve me.
Bring a chisel and acetone!
When the wind is blowing, I am sheltered.
But with the colder nights, I need to cope.
My heart is pounding! Could my arteries harden?
Perhaps a bypass could bring me hope.
Some days it’s very busy here.
At night it quiets down.
There are children with me all the time.
Though they never make a sound.
