Risk Taker

There are a few risks you shouldn't take
Like playing jump rope with a rattlesnake,
Or tasting the green thing your brother baked,
Stitching a wound with the caffeine shakes,
Driving a car while cutting a cake,
Combing your hair with a rusty old rake,
Swimming around in a yellow lake,
Bacon and butter and lard on your steak,
Or using a forklift while half awake.

But just try your spinach,
For goodness sake.

-B.C. Byron
