Tara’s selling horses for a quarter
Roadside stand– No brick, no mortar
On the corner where a big tree used to be
Nearby, Landon’s in his red Ferrari
Speeding past, he’s on safari
Eyes all starry, he attempts to gain her gaze
Mustangs sell much better when they’re living
Plastic manes? Too unforgiving!
While caregiving, Tara misses Landon’s tricks
Standing on his head, he grows much bolder
Jumps the curb and hits a boulder
A bruised shoulder makes poor Landon start to cry
Now he’s gotten Tara’s full attention
Instant friends, no apprehension
With affection, Tara tends to Landon’s wounds
Human hearts aren’t quite like toy dolls or cars
Real pain leaves real life scars
Just like ours, but we can still make things better:
