Angry Youngster

Angry Youngster

Angry, bored youngster

Could be girl, hair short

Or boy needing haircut.

Clothing navy shorts, top

Feet were bare, no shoes

Still, descriptive boy or girl

Child showed angry face

Stare half out window,

half staring ahead at shelf.

Unaware cause, so, asked.

“Why so angry little one?

Why so silent and alone?”

She or he said not a word.

I sat quietly awaiting talk.

“Mom made me cut my hair,”

she said. “I hate it so short.”

“Hair grows quickly,” said I.

Young girl smiled broadly.

“Crisis averted,” I thought.
