Jump, Jump, Jump

Our community pool’s too shallow.
⠀⠀⠀So your noggin won’t get a bad bump,
diving’s an activity we can’t allow.
⠀⠀⠀No problem—you’re still able to jump.
⠀⠀⠀
Who needs a monogamist lifelong lover?
⠀⠀⠀The one you got—wow, what a chump!—
so staying’s a thing that’s time’s over.
⠀⠀⠀No problem—you’re still able to jump.
⠀⠀⠀
Downtown’ll do. It’s sufficiently high
⠀⠀⠀’xcept the buildings’re all in a clump,
so parachuting’s something that won’t fly.
⠀⠀⠀No problem—you’re still able to jump.
⠀⠀⠀

  4. Iam Who Iam says:

    For each of my “Daily Prompt” posts, I try to find 4 others that I particularly like (and provide links to them at the bottom of mine). Today, after I found my four, for some unknown reason, I kept looking. Then I stumbled upon yours. (the only reason I “liked” it was because there wasn’t a “love” button to click on).
