    Balloon.

    Balloon

    There was once a balloon.
    And it gained oxygen.
    And it kept gaining,
    And gaining,
    And felt sick,
    And felt bad,
    And felt as if,
    Explosion could occur.

    One day, it began to feel better.
    It let some air out,
    Slowly,
    Very slowly,
    And it felt great.
    It could fly once more,
    Without explosion.

    Dark eyes,
    Dark figures stared from a corner
    At the balloon.
    They felt its air,
    They felt life.
    They wanted that air,
    They wanted that beautiful,
    Fresh,
    Resource.

    And the balloon began to fear
    The dark creatures
    And stopped letting its air out,
    And stopped letting its air out.

    All the beautiful resource,
    All the beautiful oxygen,
    All the beautiful reactions that could have occurred.
    The balloon stopped giving the world,
    Its gift,
    When dark creatures waited and wanted to feed off it,
    Abuse it,
    Twist it,
    Destroy it.

    And so. . .

    There was once a balloon.
    And it gained oxygen.
    And it kept gaining,
    And gaining.

    Inspired by a picture.

    Don't interpret this in a bad way.

    okay but actually
    balloons don't gain anything or lose anything when it comes to oxygen
    you fill them with helium

    There was once a needle.
    Small, silver, smooth.
    Nothing else.

    One eye to see the world
    Shiny body, to attract the eyes
    And one foot.

    One foot to persuade those
    Who refused to fly
    Into the sky.

    And up on a string
    This needle flew
    It had no wings

    It had no air
    No magical chemical
    To toss it to the sky

    Still, fly it would
    Up the imaginary dark
    Scaling imaginary walls

    To meet its friend
    At the zenith.
    Pop.
