Being a Boy Is a Trip

Being a country boy has advantages His mischief can be especially charming But, when a city boy barely damages His folks may find it all quite alarming. When a country boy is perturbed And gets involved in a mild kerfuffle His folks will likely become disturbed And, they will give him cause to shuffle. A country boy can sometimes be coy When facing an unfamiliar situation While nothing astonishes a city boy And he’s likely to cause consternation. All in all, city or country, boys are a trip They are slowly completing their mission, While occasionally relinquishing their lip, While they struggle to find their position. Written July 13, 2021

A nicely crafted poem, Milton, with a message about boys and their ruder, I like the last stanza: While they struggle to find their position. Blessings and kindest wishes
