We Three

In bed,
The happiest place to be.
Awake,
My wife, my son, me.

Leon the Destructioner Awakes

The Boy comes to, opening his eyes,
Wondering if this awakening hour requires his tears.
Normally a few moans are feigned,
Then his smile’s regained,
His eyes glint and glisten back and forth.
There’s trouble in those eyes.
ThisĀ little Lion boy launches into action,
Presenting himself to the morning.
The battle cry of the bedroom,
A scream that let’s the house know he’s awake
A roared warning to the world that says:
“Stand well back,
I am ready for chaos,
Leon the Destructioner is here.”
