Coveted Toy

A battle of wills between two spoiled children, fighting over a coveted toy. Each holds part of it, and in the tug of war, the toy is destroyed and then discarded, slumped in a corner, all forlorn.

Parents warn and threaten and offer alternatives...
but in the end the toy is no longer a source of pleasure but pain...

Sometimes it is a book, source of knowledge and information...
Sometimes it is a walking robot, teaching mechanics...
Sometimes it is a stuffed bunny, providing comfort...

Eventually it is damaged beyond repair...
And the break though mended, shows...
And in the corner it is cast away...
While the children move on to something new
