The children yearn

Published on 28 July 2023 at 20:32

puppies and cats

and big silly hats


long streamers and tea time

and billowy wind chimes


these are the things

that the marketers think


that the children will seek

their interest will pique


so they push to the store

the parties and toddler couture


yet over loud toys

they make a sage noise


we hear their small whines

the children, they cry...


for the children...

the children yearn for the mines
