Treasure Island

Ruby Honeytip

(1970)

Cheap Thrill


My feet are pointing high in the air,
I'm blinded by a veil of hair.
My body is shaking, a teardropp appears...
Is it too late to let me out of here!
I sneak a peek at you..do you find this amusing?
My skirt 'round my ears, my neighbours assuming....
That my moaning and screaming is born from fun,
Not knowing my instincts are telling me 'RUN! '
But wait..there's a thrill.....I feel so alive
My body is speeding as though to survive!
Laughter has replaced the feeling of dread.
Smiles have pushed my ears high on my head: -D
By the time I realise, I like it more than I'm s'pose ta
It's time to vacate from my first rollercoaster.

LET'S GO AGAIN! ! ! : -)

    I love rollercoasters but I think I'm too old for them now. Have you been on 'Tower of Terror' at Dreamworld, Gold Coast- that's my favorite! Teriffic poem! (Report) Reply

    Being a dirty old man I assumed a different scenario. You got me, but I enjoyed
    it, anyhow. I really wanted it to be like my original assumption.A real fun write (Report) Reply

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
