Little fingers
Ended on a final leaf
And a final “not”

It was a total

is good enough to catch my eye and that's what it is supposed to do. Good language and the rhythm was smooth and flowed well from beginning to end. I liked the theme and the devastated little boy, made it all come together in a smart play of words! Nice job! ~ Geezer.
