    Baseball Cards

    I bought a pack
    Of baseball cards
    With bubble gum inside

    There were six cards
    Inside the pack
    Each card was different

    I wanted to collect
    All 300 cards, so
    I kept on buying packs

    But I kept getting
    The same cards
    Over and Over

    And the ones
    I really wanted
    Were so hard to find

    I stopped buying
    Baseball cards
    But I have lots of gum!

        Ah, baseball cards, the lottery tickets of our youth. Are they still sold and collected?

        I love your presentation and the last line brings it all together.

        thanks

            Thank you all for reading! Because you took the time to read this, I will let you in on the secret. This isn't actually about baseball cards (or gum).
            I would interested to see if anyone can find the hidden meaning!

              my guess is the bubble gum souvenirs collected over repetitive patterns in decisions regarding perhaps unsatisfactory relationships?

                That is a great summation of this piece, lg! It works perfectly.
                However, the intended meaning is a bit further from the surface, and it may just be too obscure. A fault of the author, but fully intended.
