Fairgrounds

I went to the fair tonight, and seeing as I have some free time, I decided to write this!

A collage of scents
A curtain of darkness
Then boom! Overhead
The powder launches

Exploding into colors
Gold, green, white, blue
The colors of the lights
On the rides I ride with you

Everyone around us 
Is caught up in our dream
A vision fantastical,
A carousel that seems

To take us on a journey
Where we all forget the sound
Of that early morn' alarm clock
And that flat, workaday round

The End
