Today’s prompt for NaPoWriMo is un-love:
You snap and bite and growl
You sing and dance and howl
I never know
Quite how you’re going to play
Is today a kindness
Or a threat
Will there be hugs and laughter
Or pain the morning after
How old will you be today?
A mature man, solemn and wise
An old man, snappish and bitter
Or a young boy, who needs a sitter
Which way will you sway?
Are you going to regret what you say?
Will you grovel and coddle tomorrow
For the pain you give today?
