The Balloon

As a balloon 
           filled with helium 
                      floats 
                          upward toward 
                                       the sky,
                         it gets larger 
                         and larger  
               as the atmospheric pressure 

                                       drops

               And the helium 
                     inside 
           e x p a n d s.

Eventually, 
    it gets so LARGE that it
            e    x    p    l    o    d    e    s.

Remember this 
the next time you feel arrogance                                  (fl o a t)
welling up inside of you, and you                                (fl oa t)
                                                                         flo at
                                                                       float
                                                                     float
and eventually

                       l                   o                    
                      
                                                                b                  e
