After he has worn himself out
Climbing and jumping down
From the now emptied out display unit
Diving without care from the dining chair
Bouncing up and down on the sofa
Overdosing on Handy Manny
And the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse
All that is left is a log on the carpet
Unbelievably handsome…The gentle
sound of his breathing haunts the air
like a tune from a faraway flute
Then pride, a pride I cannot describe
ascends a throne in my heart.
