"Big Bully" (poem)

~ Big Bully ~

He’s big and strong,
With all his five-year-old might
He pushes, and the Angel soars and laughs
Demanding, “HIGHER!”
 Both are happy. 

An angry force
Comes down and pulls him hard
Away from happiness, the swing, the girl
That sits wide-eyed, wings folded,
Flying no more.

He cries.
A lesson learned:
Do not be kind, don’t dare be happy
You’ll have to pay.

I hope he’s strong enough
To disobey,
The chance is slim,
For even if it hurts,
If Mama tells him so,
That must be right.

Live for the Love of it,
The Happy Amateur
