Lucky Strike


Lucky Strike

“His hair was a wild
tangle; the front of
his shirt was torn”
—Ridley Pearson, Dave Barry
Peter and the Shadow Thieves

It wasn’t supposed—
To happen but it did anyway
Peter Pan grew up one day

Outta the blue he came—
All grown up with goodlooks
That could just kill

Young male Fairies—
According to the Storytellers
Get that way sometimes

They’ll edge it up—
A notch or two in Time
Into Teenage Adolescence

Just enough to get—
The feel for what guys like
Me crave in a guy like him

There he was one day—
Stretched out in a hammock
Smoking a Lucky Strike
