“I want a ride on the elephant”
“Me, on the pumpkin carriage”
“I got to the spaceship before that redhead”
Wee, round and round, up and down. Dizzy, elated, drunk on pure pleasure. Carousel music plays on a large painted organ in the corner. A disquieting clown opens his mouth to reveal his brass tube teeth, in time with the cymbals.
Out of control, screams. The old man crawls under the platform, swings up from a hole and gently eases the lever. Phew ! The dizzy young’uns stumble from their mounts and recover by sinking their jaws into toffee apple, cotton candy.
Thank you for reading. Visit all the gifted scribblers on the link up.
