Sparkler Debacle

All

is

dark

Match…

light…

 spark!

Glimmering glow

It’s going to go!

Faces upturned in the tent of the night

Eyes opened wide as the match catches light

Jumping and clapping and whooping and cheering

Don’t turn away now – a spark is appearing

It’s whispering whooshing a sibilant sizzle

It’s frothing it’s fizzing it’s going to

DRIZZLE!

Quick! Quick! quick! Before it gets wet

Cover it now! It could just work yet

Please light, please! All of us hope

That it’s going to sparkle, but

Nothing

Nope

 

Not

a

spark

All

is

dark

But the toffee apples still taste good
