The Joys of Boyhood

The excitement of flying from place to place
With little colored orbs of fairies trailing along,
Waiting to shoot down Wendy.
The evil little orb, maliciously waiting…
Killing in a fairy tale?
Competition for her Peter?
“No kisses for you, Wendy…”
She plots as a wicked smile spreads across her porcelain face,
Wringing her petite doll hands in victory.
What about Peter?
The boy who flies around London,
Saving children and taking them to Neverland-
Sorry, Peter, but that’s NOT a good idea:
Does the word ‘kidnapped’ mean anything to you?
The boy who doesn’t want to grow up,
And for good reason:
For now, you’re just a little boy in tights.
If you grew up, you’d be a man.
A man in tights, like
Robin Hood.
There’s some initiative for you,
If you insist on wearing them.
Just remember –
Boyhood is a good thing,
Minus the tights.
Not pleasurable, but it will happen:
Everybody has to grow up sometime.
This isn’t Wonderland.
