The Night Consumes

Father was certain
Discovery channel and
The success of a boy
Went hand in hand

The theoretical theories
The time on the clock
A devastating combination
Even for the best intentioned
Fourth grader

Head hits the couch
Dreaming of the pillow it longs for

Eventually,
A firm handshake Goodnight
I love you
A school boy
Desperate for rest
Shuffles away

The traction from the footy pajamas
Never seemed to get moving fast enough
Towards the security of the twin bed awaiting

Tongue tastes toothpaste
Sleeping soundly soon

The night consumes…
A few gin and tonics later
GET THE FUCK UP!
The chest
(Of drawers)
Is ripped opened
Its contents bleeding on the floor
CLEAN THIS SHIT UP!
The boy picks up the causalities
From the attack on his sanctuary

He is left wondering
For the next 10 years
What did he do wrong?
