The Wishing Well

A coin covered floor,
A wish.
The metallic water rusts,
Under the weight of desire.
Will it work?
No, it won't.
What are the odds?

Couples kiss under a mistletoe,
Hoping that their love would last forever.
Like it did before.

Seamen break champagne on a ship.
What can prevent it from taking a freezing dip?

The coin on my thumb,
The beggar at my side.
The metallic water continues to rust,
Under the weight of desire.
