Show Bag Ball by David Hilcher

🙂 and haven’t we all felt the disappointment of a dodgy showbag…

Showbag Ball

Boing boing boing

boing

boing

boing

thud

no bounce no more

no bounce no more

my superball …

don’t bounce no more

Came in a showbag

with a packet of chips

a Samboy kite

and an Australia Post ruler

and it don’t … bounce no more

When it was new

it would bounce on the grass

even when wet

it would bounce

boing boing

Once it bounced

over the house

I was scared

it was lost or went

over the neighbour’s fence

where the dog has saliva

that flows like a tractor sprinkler

I was thinking it would be locked

in that dog’s mouth

but it didn’t get that far

landed in the gutter

of the garage

But it don’t bounce no more

kinda makes me sad

like giving up love

or having a car

that takes leaded petrol

It don’t bounce no more

no boing boing

no quick steps

no more fun

nothing is good

life is sucky

Maybe I’ll see a doctor

about my depression

and get some tablets

that will make me happy again

give me some bounce

Cos my ball is stuffed

lifeless piece of crap

just a round lump of rubber

useless as a glove on a hat

boing boing

boing boing

don’t come here looking for a happy ending

boing

thud
