The roller coaster

I am led by the hand to the rollercoaster

Someone, some stranger, locks me in, promising I will be safe

Up, up, up, but I know rapid decline is somewhere

And waiting

When? How long will it last?

How ferocious will it… too late

Down I go

Now I won’t know when I will be thrust left or right

Or upside down

The ride is supposed to be like this, I was told by

Many people who have taken it

They are wrong

Wild and uncertain twists

Speeds that provide no time to think

What is this anyway? Whatever it is,

This is not what I want
