i watched some gumby late last night
i'd missed it quite a while
it was a favorite as a child
it always made me smile
.
but now that i am older
though i dig it just the same
i find i view it differently
and this is what's to blame
.
last night, i pondered all the work
that caused the magic tricks
manipulation of the clay
a thousand camera clicks
.
but when i was a little boy
i thought that he was real
and filming his tomfoolery
was really no big deal
.
he had offbeat adventures
into books, he'd jump with glee
surreal and psychedelic
unknown terms to younger me
.
it was such a flight of fancy
what a wonderful escape
to watch his limber body
change to every size and shape
.
i guess one shouldn't question
how the final product's made
just let your mind go rubber
and enjoy the grand parade
