Fortunate Son


Let’s see
how shall we begin
to describe the fortunate son

It’s impossible they say
a trick question
the description itself but a
mystery
like who killed Marie Rogêt

In the end
there is no such thing
except for a brief moment in human
history
that maybe just maybe
he was the boy next door
voted mostly like to become
an unsolved serial killer
