Summertime (Part 1)

When The Child returned
(for his tea) –
all was quiet.

but then
HE came home

and HE sat down

and HE shouted at
The Child.

Crying, the child left,
running to escape the
horrors, of
HIM

Bedroom, refuge, sanctury.
Safety in numbers: the child
hides behind his calculator

but fearing the worst
sudden change, no more pain
the child, terrified,
it was for the best
decides to go to the magic place
have mercy Lord!
to live happily ever after.

And when he gets there
(should such a time exist)…
his Dreams will be fulfilled.
