3/10/16 A tale of a boy with a bow and one fateful arrow

A ten year old boy

with a bow and an arrow

and no common sense.

Watch him play,

this is no game.

 

He shoots it

straight 

u

p

vertically

into the air.

He watches it closely,

this is the game

he likes to play,

to watch and see and...

...blink...

the arrow is lost

 

Where??

Where???

RUN!!!

 

He sprints,

wildly,

anywhere,

away!!

 

A thought occurs...

what if he runs toward it instead of to safety?

 

He STOPS.

Arms over head,

body curled

in a standing ball,

in vain protection.

 

The arrow comes

whispering death...

its fletching brushes his left ear

and the lethal tip

sticks

between the first and second toe

of his bare left foot.
