When they hit the freezing water their senses awoke to just how cold it was,
The shudder ran through them as they gasped in surprise
Looking down from the bridge it appeared so inviting
And leaning over for a closer look was all it took,
Snap! Then: “Oh! No! I can’t believe I’m about to hit the pool.”
Spluttering they looked at each other and surveyed how far it was to shore
They had no change of clothing so it would be a cold trip home.
Muttering as to their stupidity, they waded ashore,
The bridge stood beside them, unmoved, unrepentant,
But inside they were sure it was laughing at them.
