Strainer

You don’t want to hit a tree,

he said

(and I agreed).

And when you go over the falls,

don’t do it the usual way:

get down and hang on,

and if you go under,

make like a ball,

and please,

if you pop up,

don’t float all the way to the Columbia.

Swim to shore and we’ll all have

a better day.
