Instant Sequel

Thanks to AC, I've broken the rule I made to only blog once a day, as too much of a good thing can harm a lad. OK so I'm not a lad, but SB's comment made me wonder...
Be that as it may, here I give you

The Jump Part 2

Mackenzie James McArthur
shot into the sky.
In his dreams he'd never thought
he'd ever jump so high.

But now, just like a rocket,
he whizzed towards the Moon
and couldn't help but wonder
if he would fall down soon -

back into the garden
where patient Tommy stood,
hoping jolly jumping Mack
would land and stay for good.

Moon frowned as young Mackenzie
rose through the stratosphere.
'Well now', he muttered gently,
'What do we have here?'

He quickly wished upon a star
and brought Mack to a stop,
then hailed a passing fluffy cloud
to save him from the drop.

Mack floated softly back to Earth
to land by Tommy's side -
he's surely learned his lesson
about 'fall' and 'too much pride'.

    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. I'm delighted to meet you!

    Somehow, your previous post about wandering around acting nonchallant (did I spell it correctly, it doesn't look right) pretending you're NOT looking for a missing object reminded me of Winnie ther Pooh. "Tut, tut. It looks like rain."

  3. Look at Jinksy, even with a bad case of CRS like mine, she's still crankin' 'em out! :)
