Bouncy Clouds.


There they were at the top of the building

Looking down on the city obscured by clouds.

One looked down and said “Those Clouds look so solid,

As though you could bounce on them”.

“Surely not” said another, “You’d just fall through”.

“I’ll try it” said the first,

So off he jumped, he hit the cloud

And bounce straight back.

“Wow!” said the second, “I don’t believe that!”

So the first jumped off once more,

And bounced back again.

The second said “I must try that!”

So he jumps off the building

And passes straight through the cloud,

To meet his death on the path below.

The third man turned to the first and said

“You can be a right swine sometimes, Superman!”
