Poem: Case

By: Milt Montague


when I was a child
the world was dominated
by the penny candy case

highlight of the local candy store
a large glass showcase
featuring many glass shelves
chock full of different candies

all available at two treats
or more per penny

the temptations were strong
the choices were difficult
the coppers were few

the world was mine
for a penny or two
