A little boy fell on to the Earth.
Out of the sky he dropped like a bird from a nest
and thus proclaimed his love for all things
as everything to his eyes was new.
Across rivers he swam
and through deserts he trekked
with swollen feet and bloodied hands.
Finally he came across one like him.
A body with arms and legs
and a head like a balloon sat atop them.
Through his travels the little boy had grown to be as tall
and as he approached his fellow man
with his burly beard and bloodied arms outstretched,
the man turned away, repulsed, and quickly fled.
The boy began to cry.
Tears which did not fall
but returned to the sky from which he came
and soon his torn and ravaged body along with them.
