Fate Awaits

and is nothing but patient

When the child in the man
went wild, insisting on
double portions in everything,
and stealing others' food, we
naturally turned to his woman,
balanced, mature.

A beacon of a real grownup!

Unfortunately, she had morphed
into a perpetual teen, dancing till
dawn with fellows of foreign names,
and waking up God knows where!

We asked Old Andrew, who'd been
through the mill and spat out twice.

"Only thing cures infantilism is tragedy,
so abrupt that even total goddamn fools
recognize it!"

Thus we go through life cringing, waiting
for something terrible.
