BALLOONS

Itís hard to reconcile some things you see in life
My kids get so excited by balloons
Though we have to watch out when they take them outside
I have seen leaves of harmless-looking grass POP them
I guess thatís while theyíre called blades
And yet...
When I was a student in college
I walked by a stand of thistles
Pointy as needles
Who gently held a perfectly inflated balloon
In their thorny fingers
I think there is a lesson there
On this day you got your bloodwork back
