hammer time

Pinocchio is carried into the ER
all his strings tangled and knotted
a case worker is immediately summoned
felonious neglect is what is suspected

Geppetto is called on the carpet
he wets his pants then and there
though he is guilty of nothing
he’s filled with fear

he’s intimidated by the power of Family Services
he’s afraid of their wrath
the whole incident is threatening and scary,
and he still has to plead,beseech and explain

when they call in that woman
they call the Blue Fairy
