the other day I went to walk through a puddle and fell in waist-deep,
and I heard of a boy who dove in head first just to find out it wasn’t so steep.
it’s so hard to tell how deep it can be
but it takes so long to wade in slow, making sure I really see what I see.
I don’t want to stop to see whether it’s shiny from oil or from sun,
guess that’s another downside to our microwave generation.
