The hotel was palatial,
A scenic Taj Mahal,
The lobby was quite special,
It stood three stories tall.

At the end a staircase
That curved up to the sky,
I knew before I left that place,
Would have to give a try.

I waited til the still of night,
And crept to lobby tall,
I gazed below at glorious sight,
I heard the railing call.

I climbed aboard and down I went,
I slid in speeding glory,
My ecstasy was heaven sent,
As passed by second story.

Heard a yell, "Hey, look out mister!"
"You better had slow down,"
I saw the knob at end of bannister,
My smile then turned to frown.

I ended up down on the floor,
Beside a grand piano,
I must admit a wee bit sore,
And now I sing soparano.

Oh, temptations lure!  I got almost as big a bang out of the ending as you did!  Thanks

This was great Mike--I had the same problem myself, ha,ha, (well different of course, cause I'm a girl), from a very tall boy's bicycle--a girl lure.

 In the dew of little things,
the heart finds its morning
and is refreshed.

ROFLMAO,  Arghhhh...this one truly made me cringe.  Soprano! Heck, I'd never sing again.
You know it's kinda hard to type curled up with one hand holding your...well you know.
Great poem.

But I'll bet it was fun! I did that (but I was just a kid of course!) sooooooo much fun!

Very entertaining poem, Mike!

The big question, of course - Was it worth it???

Of course it was worth it... as he sits here cross-legged.  And as far as singing...  I sound somewhat between a cross of a rabid coyote and Rosanne...  so I will pass on that one.  Thanks for the comments.
