Wishing For Things To Be Different

Walking along a city street
I pass a family. The young boy,
slight of figure, wide-eyed,
wears a T-shirt saying:
Man of Steel. 

He is holding his mother's hand,
looking slightly frightened by the city
with its cars and crowds.

OK, I get it, but I still wish
I could give the boys T-shirts
saying Man of Jelly

and have them be proud.

(In looking at joy this month, we also look at where it's absent or hindered — just in case you're wondering.)
