airplane taking off

The slow parade, the idle wait,
Then suddenly a roar
As if the lions as king of beasts
Were all declaring war.

No matter if the concrete looks
As smooth as sheltered bay,
There’s rattle and there’s rumble as
The tires roll down the way. 

A quietness then within the roar
Like donuts with a hole.
And quickly doubled (quiet and smooth) –
The fish leaped from the bowl!

I once saw a case of too many
(But maybe I was just a ninny).
I knew not the facts;
I just saw the acts.
But eight seemed much more than just plenty.

Eight coppers to do the arresting
Of one who seemed quite uncontesting
Was more than enough
For any young tough.
Were donuts free there for ingesting?
