An ode to the Air show

Since the Toronto Air Show is happening this weekend us Torontonians have had the pleasure of hearing their powerful engines roaring above our fair city. So in honour of this momentous event, I have written an ode to show:

Zoom zoom airplanes

Boom boom overhead

We run to the window

To just miss the rockets

Another sonic boom rattles the pane

And again they’re gone through clouds

Soon the jets shall whiz along

with coloured smoke at their wake

Thousands will gawk while

The rubes eat deep fried everything

Sandwiched between

Deep fried everything

For now we spot the specks

Moving across the horizon

We look to each other in awe

And wonder aloud

Why don’t they let us

Take a mid-afternoon nap
