In the Sun, with my son

Paradise fades away

on this sun scorched day

after the pools of fun

and the jumps of play

I sink into a thickened clay

my son is so restless

for more fun

but I cannot play

My time has ended

this bunny has run out

and his energizer keeps on going

with no fear to clout

his desire and vitality

from coming about

I wonder how Santa

keeps his elves

which way this turns

only time will tell

does it go down that road

to parent hell?

Or can I take the

gentler path

that gives him


and gets him off my back.
