55 - Doll Collector

It's a most unseemly quality
to covet each doll you see.

(Different!)
(New!)

You scheme until you have her.
You enjoy her for awhile and show her off.
Then you put her with the others;
one more dolly on a shelf.

Are you off to collect another?

It's a most unworthy hobby for a man.










About Friday Flash 55: The challenge is to write a complete story in fifty-five words. If you've written a 55-flash, go let The G-Man know!

It sure is! Both the literal meaning and the metaphor. Great 55.
