Toys Make Noise

Toys Make Noise

 

Electronic toys have buttons

that even a young baby will

push to hear music and see

flashing lights.

 

No matter what program

put inside his pink and white,

plush, rabbit skin. Jack the

rabbit wouldn’t begin.

 

Jack had a bad habit. He wouldn’t

sing, play music or flash any lights,

no matter how many buttons baby

pushed.

 

Baby dreamed Jack was dead and

cried in the night, until Baby saw

that Jack Rabbit only needed love

to relent and play a tune

 

when his buttons were pressed if

Baby showed enough love for the

furry toy. He held Jack tight and gurgled

loving words into the rabbit’s fur.

 

Jack didn’t respond and Baby put Jack

away with all his other broken toys,

because he didn’t know that fresh

batteries would’ve brought Jack back to life.
