Attention Small Boy

~

Running, so as not to be caught

the small boy slides into the garden

where his large family keeps a house

in the village.

~

Behind books candles and matches

a secret hides in the den

where his father sits

rewarding his children scholars

for their great minds.

~

The poor father continues, not knowing

the consequences his singular

vision will have

when his children haven’t been

allowed to tell him the truth

for so long.

~

He is a father living by rich

tradition of obedience for

family integrity. The expectations

he carries are handed

along to his children

as heavy diplomas.
