The Naughty Little Boy

entry picture

The naughty little boy:

He likes to roam around,

Invading foreign ground.

Harsh methods he’ll employ,

The naughty little boy:

He measures out the soil

That he intends to spoil

Or preferably destroy,

The naughty little boy:

A foe who stands alone

Is butchered by a drone:

His brand-new, shiny toy,

The naughty little boy:

No opposition views

Are broadcast on the news,

So as not to annoy

The naughty little boy,

Who likes to live in style

Inside his tasteless pile,

Far from the hoi polloi,

The naughty little boy:

He will not suffer peace;

The carnage’s increase

He’s certain to enjoy.

The naughty little boy.

I often wonder, what HE was like as a presumably, innocent child, and what made HIM change into such a monster?

A really clever, and such a well written poem, Stephen.

Thank you.

Good humour. No guesses who the naughty little boy is.
