Tin Man
When a man's an empty kettle,
He should be on his mettle,
And yet I'm torn apart.
Just because I'm presumin'
That I could be kinda human
If I only had a heart.
-The Wizard of OZ

Little dollies, plastic spiders, wooden tops
litter the painted pink floor
trying very hard to tiptoe
around all these toys
broken toys, new toys, old toys.
like a cat I am stealthy,
sneaky and quiet,
Stuffed monkey, a snow globe and a baby rattle
Too many toys are in this room.
Much too small of a room.
Clowns, paintbrushes, feathered pillows
Really, how does it Work?
What child can play with this many,

This is a metaphor, a riddle (though it's not hard)for you to interpret and enjoy.
