The Red Button
By Ruth Mostrales

“Don’t touch the red button,”
my mother said,
but I couldn’t get that button
out of my head!

It stirs me to think,
it tickles my veins;
it charges my muscles,
and loosens my reins.

There’s a little blue button,
there’s a green one, too;
but the little red button
outshines the two!

So, it’s the little red button
that I want so much;
but it’s the one little button
that I cannot touch!

“Not the red button,”
my mother said,
as she pressed the red button
inside my head.
