Jumping Man by Brandon Evans

In by New Author on November 11, 2010 at 11:54 pm

The jumping man burned up in the atmosphere today.

(The itsy bitsy spider went up the water spout.)

They say he wasn’t wearing proper heat shielding; he thought it weighed him down too much.

(Down came the rain and washed the spider out.)

The jumping man is dead: Icarus has fallen. The world was his trampoline and the people believed in him.

(Out came the sun and dried up all the rain.)

Some say, Good riddance. The jumping man caused too much destruction. Two craters for every jump. Takeoff and landing.

(And the itsy bitsy spider was never seen again.)
