They were little beads of joy, all the colors of the rainbow.
Cherry red, sunshine yellow,
Electric blue, lively green
The colors have faded
their joyful colors shrinking with each passing year.
They come in uniform plastic containers,
with instructions and no pictures
What happened to those playful cartoons?
the Boy popping a gumball in his face?
Why do I dread these little candies now?
BTW, this isn't supposed to be dark. just seemed the only thing that I could make out of this picture. Even with a playful twist to the tone, it would still come back to drugs.
