Halcyon


As I sit here drinking hot chocolate and
Watching videogame trailers,
Somewhere a man sees his son taken
To become a drug-addicted soldier,
And I wonder if even just for a moment
He smiles at the absurdity of it all
Like I do on seeing a Morris Minor estate
Amongst legions of Fords, Fiats and Toyotas.
