My buddy started big-kid school last week.
He trotted off without a backward glance.
But he was up before his clock could speak,
and after school his bowels marked his pants
(who’s not since birth endured that circumstance).
He’s brave, and teeming with intelligence,
but probably as nervous as his aunts,
as passionate as we, and as intense.
