The Toy Gun
while digging for treasure
never let me have a toy gun
with murder mystery on TV
have a classic of my own
no mother to see
feelings won't be hurt
she'll never know
one's oxidized and cannot shoot
would please Mother now

Today I am linked with Kerry O'Conner at Flash 55 Plus,
meaning write a poem using exactly 55 words which I did. The title is extra.
The "Plus" is to involve Classic in some way. Mainly Kerry was talking about Classic written work, music, or art. But classic toys are also in demand and are collectable.
Per the picture above of the gun for sale on eBay, it is a Classic Hubbley Toy Derringer Pistol. I did find this one on an old homestead, it is vintage (link), made of a diecast zinc alloy. The gun on top here was offered for $29.95 on eBay. Mine is not worth very much in its poor condition.
I'm writing a Poem a Day (PAD), trying for the whole month of April again. I did it last year, but ... So I'm linked to NaPoWriMo 2016 for that.
