Daily Prompt: Carousel

Addiction the carousel of horror
Cycling not round and round
But vertical, up and down

Addiction’s painted horses
Ride shame regret and fear
And desire for final leave

Addiction’s music gaudy bawdy
Not cheerful but a dirge
Covered ears no stop to urge

Addiction has a younger cousin
Compulsion uncontrolled
Wringing hands an exact fold

Addiction’s time repeating
Never to be ended?
Please n’more again again!
