At the fairground 09/09

I have been at the fairground for most of my life,
Trying out many different rides.

I have come to learn what I know and like,
And by what I can't abide.

The ferris wheel is too high, too slow,
The merry go-round, too safe,
I love the speed the 'coaster goes
And ride it every day.

Today there's a new one I want to try,
But I cannot see the tracks.
I simply take my seat and try to sit back and relax
As I wait for the unknown
With excitement and fear
And put my faith in my experience over the years.

Off we go at a pace so slow,
But I know this will pick up.
I know what I want
I know what I like,
But I know it's down to luck.
