Society’s Child

Delay on the checkout line
Tension rises up his spine
filling his skull
with more demands
His wife offers a helping hand
“Shut up!” escapes his mouth
Like a leaking pressure cooker
Burning his wife with his steam

Her other hand
Holds their 3-year old boy
He is too young
To shut people out
With angry words
still asks for a hug
when upset

His father’s son
Society’s child
Created on the assembly line
A perfect replica
This poisonous model
His birthright
