I open the Cracker Jack box
Only for the dinky prize.
My eyes open wide in wonder.
It’s another cheap sticker.
Wow, it’s just what I always wanted,
I genuinely think to myself.
The prize surprises me every time.
It doesn’t have to be perfect,
And I know it won’t be.
But the little things make me the happiest.
It’s not just the prize that excites me;
It’s that I have to use my imagination to enjoy it.
