Fathers and Sons

Mother’s tend to run interference
when fathers interact with their sons
“Too ruff,” she says, “be gentle, don’t criticize everything,”
she pleads. Yet, when you look to animals in the wild,
abandonment is common and if fathers stay around
eventually their sons challenge them
becoming head of the herd, but until that eventual
take-over the sons wrestle with their siblings and cousins
building strength to one day sit at the throne of their father.
