    I feel I’ve been cheated, I fear I’m naïve,
    I’m worried I wasted a penny on my needs.
    I’m not fond of frittering my money well earned,
    So for indulgent dreams, I’ve lived a lesson well learnt.
    My coin fell like Alice down the rabbit hole so dark,
    But it landed with a clatter, and it left there no mark.
    It lost all it’s worth when it landed on a heap
    At the bottom of the chasm, on a pile of dead leaves.
    My wish went unanswered, my dreams were ignored,
    My hopes were extinguished when I reaped no reward.
    If you’d heard what I wanted, if you’d spared me some time,
    Would you have returned my Daddy; would you grant him one crime?
    I know I shouldn’t ask, but why is my life required?
    I’d pay all due penance when my youth has expired.
    I should have tied my penny to a strong piece of string,
    So I could reclaim it fully when Daddy did not win.
    Was it my fault for hoping luck would favour us one day?
    Well **** you, Wishing Well, how much more must I pay?
