A Ball called Paula

by John Long   Jul 2, 2007


From the womb,
Curled up in a ball,
Now sometimes bouncing along,
Sometimes kicked to the wall.

Fridays up, Mondays down,
At ten she was caught,
At nineteen she is thrown.

Strangely though, when deflated
And lacking airs,
She is roundly content and
Without a care.
