Second Son

He looks like a grown up.
Tops me by ten or more inches now,
with a Calvin Klein undie-boy body
and a razor line of repartee.

He's signed on for the army in May,
already a veteran of his first O.E.

I know he'll survive without me there
to bandage his scrapes
and sing him to sleep.

But when he climbs out of my car
at his father's house
I see the blonde curls
of my two-year-old son,
clutching Brown Teddy
as he toddles inside.

I was sooo hoping he'd lose interest over time, or change his mind :(

how long does he go in for?

Are you guys involved in any international actions at this time?

I don't know how long he'll be in for. I'm thinking a year at least. So far as I know we're not involved in any international things, although maybe some troops in Fiji? And some aid workers and specialist people in Iraq I think???
