So…the less said here the better, I feel like. Because the poem is not very good.

I used the motif of the ferris wheel presented in the lyrics and the sense of avoiding society’s clutches from both the song and the video to organize the poem around. Thus, the stuck on top of the wheel but the real prisoners are those below things. Poets of skill could probably make that work. In my opinion, I do not.
