The kids crowded the entrance, their cheers & poundings gainst the gate like static.

@ the bell toll, the gate finally opened, & the children stormed in. They flung through all o’ the toys: all o’ the baseballs, cashewcrackers, M-16s, & bubble wrap.

But 1 o’ them noticed the toys positioned round them all in a circle & stopped.

The toys were marching toward them.

The kids hammered nails into boards, turned screwdrivers into screws, & poured plastic into molds & set them burning.

All the while they realized that they were only producing shovels that dug them deeper & deeper into slavery.
