A QUIP ABOUT THE SLIP

I like seeing steam engine slip,

Where ┬ádriving wheels lose their grip…

On the rails

Adhesion fails

For a moment–an exciting ┬árare rip!

We laugh at funny slapstick,

(Some of us think it’s sick)…

But all agree

A good “tee-hee”

Can save us in the nick.

I feel sorry for video bloopers,

The action of various stupors…

Deliberately

They dangerously,

Put themselves on the edge–such troopers!

–Jonathan Caswell

RAIN-SOAKED BANANA PEELS

Rain-soaked banana peels,

Can you hear delighted squeals…

Watching slips

Acrobat flips,

Under motorcycle wheels?

–J.E. Caswell
