Parental Advice

You know
Icarus
I understand
your need to rebel against paternal authority
find your own way
do your own thing
reach for the stars
and all that
but kid
you are flying through the air on wings held together by wax
which may certainly be a bit of a design flaw
and I’m sure you can nag your dad about it once you escape
and are safe on land again
it’s just that at the moment
maybe you should exercise a bit of common sense
and not insist on being such a teenager
and

never mind
he’s dead now
