Red Rubber Ball

index

He came bouncing into the world like a red rubber ball. Over time he lost his redness but never his bounce. He knocked over problems as if they were pins in a bowling alley. Hurts and insults found no purchase on him for though he was hard and rangy, his soul was round and smooth. He took the global view on things and realized that the earth had lost its bounce and needed nurturing too.

  1. thanks Mitch. I had forgotten there was another song with the same title, released some five years later than the Bobby Vee song. And yes Circle’s song, though different, is just as much fun but it was the Bobby Vee song I was thinking of. Thanks for the clip 🙂
