Midway, Canadian National Exhibition:
Stroller pushers and sticky handed candy floss flossers.
Ring toss tossers,
Swing the hammer swingers.
Show-off muscle builders, and
“Try again to win the giant Panda for your pretty gal” geezers.
The spin-around-ride riders and the roller coaster fanatic-ers:

The “Guess your weight” guessers and the “Don’t you dare” darers,
The bump into-ers and the “Watch it!” accusers.
The tummy aching throwing-up-ers
Cry-baby mommy worriers,
and the “going home now” goers,
The let go of balloon losers.
The big, red balloon
