big wishes

by theuglyearring

I found a wishingbone
and asked for world peace
but the world just broke in half
and there were no more geese.
I noticed this and asked for it to become whole again.
I still had the wishingbone
and I asked for no more wars,
but the bone misunderstood
and there were no more apple cores.
