I do not enjoy roller coasters
I am not chicken
But they say
You just have to try it!
So I do
I suffer through
Waiting for a thrill
That never comes
Wired differently
I think to myself
Why am I paying
To be jerked around?
When I am anxious
I pray to find peace
I can see God laughing
At his silly child
Why do you ask me?
You put yourself there!
