I Want This for Him
Shh! I caution them. He is swimming right now.
They look past me trying to see.
One asks how?
Not sure I admit but it’s his world. Not mine.
Hero is holding a bird cage up.
Readying himself for a sing.
He fancies himself Mark Spitz and Adam Lambert.
I want this for him
When we first got him he had no self-confidence at all
Now he has more than enough for three
I have never felt more proud
Hero wraps a pink feathered boa around his neck
and begins to belt out "Poker Face".
He might be better than Lady Gaga!
