There was a little boy
sitting on a fresh green lawn
on a sunny day
all by himself.

He had a chocolate chip brownie
in his hands
and broke a piece to eat.

As he did, a cloned figure appeared
to give him a hug
then disappeared.
And the little boy smiled.

He broke another piece of brownie to eat
then two more clones appeared
to give him two hugs
and left him.
This time the little boy
smiled showing teeth.

And as he ate more pieces of the brownie
more clones appeared
giving him more hugs
making his smile brighter.
And after the clones were gone
the little boy had nothing
in his hands
but stains of chocolate
on his fingers.

He licked them off
still smiling happily
still feeling hugged
though no one else could give him
a real one
