New Year Countdown Poem 2021: 26. First Toy Casualty

Parents know it too well,
The hours after the day,
A child will cry,
And a toy thrown away.
There is always one toy,
That doesn't see new year,
That a kid will break,
And claim it was just sitting there.
Some will try and fix it,
Others will just be replaced,
And for some,
The toy will be thrown in the waste.
So spare a thought for those toys,
Lost, broken or destroyed,
And let that question built,
Which toy will next be killed.
