The Boy Who Wore A Mask

There once was a boy,
His parents named him Todd.
In most ways he was normal,
But there was something odd.

Todd liked to wear a mask,
The reason was unknown.
He wore it day and night,
His face was never shown.

One day as Todd was playing
Outside his favourite hole,
A boy came running at him,
He only had one goal.

When the mask was taken,
What remained was quite a shock,
For instead of human features,
There lived but just one rock!

Now this rock was nothing special,
It didn’t dance or sing.
Heck it wasn’t even living,
It just didn’t do a thing!

So the boy did what we all might,
He reached into Todd’s face,
Wrapped his hands around the object
And removed it from its place.

He skipped off down the street
To play at the nearby lake.
Skimming rocks was his favourite
And now he couldn’t wait!

“So what became of Todd?”
How kind of you to ask.
Poor Todd just lay there lifeless,
Beside his favourite mask.
