I jumped as high as the sky
and it was really fun
until I fell back down again
and realized I had only been five inches off the ground and my arm was twisted.
I went to the doctors office for my arm
which I had broken, not twisted, and I thought I had a radioactive spider bite.
I thought being Spiderman would be fun
until I realized I wasn’t Spiderman and they weren’t gonna give me a sticker.
I sat around for a looong time
and stayed home from school so I could be an investigator
which I thought would be fun because I would get to go on adventures
until I realized I had to sleep all day, and I wasn’t going to be an investigator.
My arm had a giant heavy glove on it
and I thought I was like Superman
with that giant heavy glove that could pound through anything
until I realized it was a cast and I wasn’t a superhero.
My parents took me to a drag race
and I drove a huge car into a flaming truck
and it was super cool
until they ran out of quarters and told me to grow up.
I stuck my tongue out at them
and I crossed my arms
and I shook my head
and I told them, I’m never gonna get a day older.
