Nano



It's nice to be him.

You need neither food nor drink.

Every day,
they let you out
for fun and games.

Every night,
they deflate you,
roll you up,
and put you in a box.

Once a week,
they recharge you
by plugging you into a socket.

Everyone knows you,
while you know no-one.

And you couldn't care less what they think.

Isn't it gorgeous!
I wish I were him.
