Soon to Learn a Lesson

Inexperienced little twit
holding a plastic cup filled with glue
watching it slide down
towards his face
mouth open.
Hoping against hope
that this could be the candy
his father had forbidden him.

End of the rainbow.
(Possibly more than that.)
Pot of gold.

The moment in time he finally
grabbed the hair on the back of the neck
of a pesky rodent
held it up in front of his face
stuck his tongue out
and felt dominant.

This was
meant to be
everything.
