First Place Amateur Poet Category Robert A. Wohl


As kids we had great fun
blowing bubbles, then chasing
them ‘till they popped,
even blowing them in
our milk with a straw.

Pa would talk about
serious things like the
“Stock Market” bubble
and how it ‘burst’ in '29.
Then- - our “Housing” bubble.

I guess the problem is
bubbles burst, like ours
did when we were kids.
You’d think we all could
understand this by now.
