Sooooooo what brings you here today?
I am expecting someone
Someone, who is wearing a nametag

I don't know, I just don't seem to be bothered with them

I'm the shopkeepers assistant
A clumsy friend
I don't dabble in details if you know what I mean

Sometimes I leave the door unlocked
and sometimes I don't restock the sodas
there are many kiosks just like this one

same old broodjes
same old sodas
same old snacks
same old kaas
same old windows
same old ceiling
same old floor
same old everything

I come down here every now and then
to listen to the water and relax...
and when I relax
I like to put on some soothing pop music

I was on my way to the basement but forgot something on the way
a ginger shaped key thats for the door to my secret hiding place

This hiding place is very deep beneath
the deepest depths of the ocean

what makes this kiosk so special
is that its real produce is visible to those who know its magic
and this produce comes forth in the form of a wish
