In the far land of Fudge Cake, an ordinary marshmallow was challenged by the Major.
He was to prove his worth by braving the ravages of time, atop Marshmallow Tower.
But ours was an ambitious marshmallow.
“Oh…this is easy. A cakewalk!” said he, tragically, thinking not of Spaghetti sticks and their fragility.
So he began with zeal and dreams of the crown, but overconfidence and haste pulled him down.
Though the Major Support System- Tape, Thread and Scissors-aided him well. At the last moment his tower gave and, humbled, to the ground he fell.
Now no one would sing him songs of praise, for arrogance had him beat. Still he would achieve some measure of success, not admit defeat. He would not soon forget these painful trials-taking care, testing himself at every stage. And while he couldn’t reach the heights he desired, our Marshmallow had, indeed, come of age.
