Sonnet to Maturity

Sat, 01/07/2017 - 21:57 -- jolds17

Will you return to me, Boomerang I throw

Away from me in anticipation.

Of your quick return I have yet to know,

But it shall to the unfortunate one.

Facing the dark forest of no return,

He knows nothing of his dangerous fate.

With a toy as a boy he used to yearn

For, while playing, surrounded by the gate.

He stands now unaware of the future,

Of the thwacking he will shortly recieve,

Oh how I wish the young lad would mature,

He is still the wee bairn she did concieve,

Wam! but, no crying now nor grimacing

The boy stood unshaken and unflinching.
