Stuck

Rescue
came short
for this to happen:
quicker tongue,
and your
hand is sweaty,
too.

 
Izy has the Real Toads writing erasure poems from local news stories. I couldn’t resist using this story of life imitating art (triple-dog dare ya!): Easthampton middle school student touches tongue to cold pole, gets stuck; freed by firefighters

    I liked it Marion. I am glad you let us in on the real story.
    Dumb kid. But they (never me) were doing that back in my day too.

  8. Those tongues and sweaty hands! I for a split second back in elementary school touched the tip of my tongue to the tether ball pole. I was lucky I chickened out.
