A WOLF AND HIS BOY
There was a story long ago
told by young and old.
About a wolf and his boy,
living together in utter joy.
Many thought it madness
to show a beast such kindness.
For a human child to love a wolf and care
without thinking it unfair.
They tried to fight the beast
the boy to save at least.
But they didn't know
that the beast wasn't a beast at all.
He was a man left alone
without a family or a home.
Burned by love at a young age,
he soot the help of a mage.
To take away his pain and feelings,
to turn him into a beast bent on mindless killings.
Once a month on the full moon
he would bring a bloody doom
on those standing in his way,
not caring what they had to say.
But then came a boy, sweet and fragile
with warm hugs and a mouth running a mile.
He gave the wolf what he had once lost,
what his heart craved the most.
And so not a beast
lives with the boy, not in the least.
Just a wolf.
A wolf with his boy.
