playthings.

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:

Together
