Gumball Machine

the gumball machine belonged to my sis.

i wanted it, but more than this

i wanted what was in it,

she never let me have.

one night i took the machine

and smilingly said

you can have it back when i’m dead.

she got that look in her eye

you know the one

and i felt some regret

but the deed was done.

i smiled again

and began to run

straight to the shed.

i don’t know what was in my head

but she cornered me there

and took the machine,

opened it up and said

lets share.
