Home, Home on the Range

Just another afternoon waiting on the school bus

In the beginning, all is quiet

At first, I was just watching the pretty white bird in the pasture across the road

bulls butting heads

Dad putting Junior in his place

Mom runs to the rescue

Mom to the rescue with sibling in tow

My mother protected me from the world and my father threatened me with it.

~Quentin Crisp, The Naked Civil Servant, 1968
