Pinball Pappa

Quickly, Pappa pulls the plunger back,
And the ball shoots up with a very loud WHACK!
The table’s alive with color and light,
But Pappa has to keep the ball in sight.
Soon the metal ball finds bumpers at the top,
Bumping back and forth—will it ever stop?
Oh! But now it’s rolling down our way,
And Pappa has to keep the ball in play!
Whew! He strikes the button on his right,
And the little ball is back in flight—
Up a ramp, around a curve,
Hitting targets with every swerve.
The speeding ball is hard to track,
And then I hear a deafening CRACK!
But Pappa’s smiling from ear to ear,
And “REPLAY” is announced for all to hear.
Pappa’s good, a Wizard—I have no doubt;
But eventually even his talents wear out.
The screen above records his high score,
But, of course, the Wizard just wants more!
