Hot Air Balloon
Around the world in 80 days,
the parents rented a balloon.
The children, though, are here to stay
because they have no clue.
They're sitting on the edge of a cliff,
just watching the clouds in the sky,
then suddenly they're frozen stiff
when they see a hot air balloon passing by.
They stand to get a closer look
and don't believe their eyes.
Their parents are drifting over the brook,
casually waving good-bye.
The children frantically wave their arms.
They loudly scream and shout.
Their parents, though, show no alarm
and simply just peace out.
