Carrot Seed

A little boy yodeling in walmart.

His mother was a jackal.

His father is the district attorney.

And his big brother is watching you.

Every day the little boy pushed with constant horizontal force.

But nothing happened.

And nothing else matters.

Everyone kept feeling a sense of awe.

But he shouted all the more.

And then, one day everything changed

just as the sun went down.

The End
