One fine, and sunny day
A psychotic balloon
Went on the rampage
Due to its inflated ego
And a moment of pique
A tempestuous whirlwind
Lay within its rubber skin
And, somehow
A very sharp pin
Deflated all its rivals
Pop! pop! pop! pop! pop! poppity pop!
It was a veritable bloodbath
As air escaped, and rejoined
And was re-united with
The atmosphere
Then accidentally
And finally
Itself BANG!!!
Its hermaphroditic, asexual parent
Scolded the young headstrong balloon
Saying (predictably)
"You've let everybody down, including yourself!"
The young balloons' bubble burst
And after being recycled
It became
An inadequate condom
The moral of this sad tale
If you have an inflated ego
Full of hot air
One day
Your bubble will burst
And you'll end up
One way, or the other
