[by S. David] [art by Daniel Victor]

And the toy
It walked
It talked
And did silly
Things and
The youngling
Played and
Played let it
Do those things
Youth is gawky
Youth is clumsy
And the toy
Was broken
A tear a sigh
A keening sound
A mournful sound
And sadness
And the youngling
Knew pain inside
Though it tried
It could not
Fix its pet
Human being
