and now for something a little different

Tap Dancing on land mines

     If you tap dance on a land mine,
don't wear your best shoes.
This could get messy.
Just see what ensues.
    I would wear armor coated boats
covered with steel four foot thick.
I would also be poking and banging
with a really long stick.
    But, let me tell you 
before I digress.
There's other things I wouldn't do
because they would make a mess
     I wouldn't eat bananas
in front of a hungry Chimpanzee.
I hear they're really strong,
and I would not like to test and see.
     Playing Russian Roulette with a magician
would be only an idiots lot.
You know he could palm a bullet,
and guess who would get shot.
     Trying to tickle an elephant on the foot
may seem fun and fancy free,
but if he steps on you
you'll be dead..I guarantee.
     So when you go out dancing,
remember what I said.
Stay away from the land mines
so you can go home to your bed.
     If you must go out there,
please be careful I deplore.
Wear your titanium stompers,
and leave your good shoes on the floor.

You know, I've read this poem several times and I can't seem to help but think that it seems like you are talking in a metaphorical sense. :)

Ysabella,It is quite a metaphor as most of the land mines are better left alone.Love,Ben
