Same Same But Different - to take the five challenge
words and NOT use them in a poem but their synonyms
switch - reversal shift substitution swap
floor - ground deck stage mat
polish - gloss brilliance sparkle luster
fabric - textile fibre
water - drink rain tears Adam's ale shower
a reversal of a fortune
a shift to manhood to a higher order
a swap of a kind
a coming of age for a teenager
from the ground up onto a higher deck
the stage is set
the brilliance providing a sparkle
the gloss of a luster
isn't it fun to be considered an adult
doing adult things?
fat chance! without fibre but a conjecture
hoping to mirror an adult is not just yet
this is a special birthday dinner for you
you've just turned 18, an adult legally yes!
but in my eyes as a parent
you're still a child, my child.
no drinks for you, just Adam's ale
you may have tears in your eyes
but you're showered with love as a substitute
you're wondering why?
well, we need someone sober
to drive us home!
