No Idea

What is that boy doing?
Throwing that stick up
Again and again
Tossing it around
Up into that tree
Again and again
Over and over
Why does he bother?
Again and again
Oh, I see
It’s that old chestnut…

Will persistance pay off? Will the shell hold something worth the effort? Worth roasting?

Hello Inconsequential,
