Don’t Touch That!

“No please, don’t touch that.”
The words were said deadpan
to the ‘I want’ child.
Was it the kid?
Or was it her folks?
Whoever’s to blame,
the result was the same.
She wanted it and always got,
and so she ignored the warning.
Delivered with a knowing hint,
more a formality you see.
So the machine gobbled her up completely!

“Oh dear”
