boys will be Boys

Sitting in the middle

of the floor

playing with a dead mouse

it was all that I had

Both parent were absent

I was left with my

my own devices

So it was this mouse

and both hands

Given the chance

I mite replace

This wasn’t the case

So I played with this mouse

Till it’s blood ran from its mouth

I know now that playing was

like the parents I wanted

But never had

One thought on “boys will be Boys
