There are brass rings on this carousel!

As much as we love the carousel ride
we weren't planning on riding it all week.
But someone caught a brass ring.

Back at the turn of the previous century
Carousel rides were pretty popular.
There was no internet see
and people needed entertainment
so carousel's were it.
The inside animals could go up and down
but because of the design, the outside ones couldn't.
Some genius devised an idea.
"Let's give the outside riders a challenge!"
A metal arm was suspended above the outside riders.
It contained a brass ring.
If you were lucky enough and skilled enough
you might be able to grab the brass ring.

And that is how "grabbing the brass ring"
has come to be known as
striving for the highest prize.

And Lucianna caught it :

That Carousel will be spinning
for 4 more days.
We think you should schedule it.
