Sarcastic (O.S.I.)

Hi all,
I am posting this creative poem for O.S.I. The theme is sarcastic.

Sarcastic grins
Little boys
With rocks in their hands
Hurling stone
At the moon
Elusive, wide, and yellow
In the great Milky Way of memory
Years elapse
Gaping from my window
Rugged men
With rocks in their hands
Sarcastic grins

First thought that came to my mind? "Little shits!"

Those 'little sarcastic boys' grew into 'rugged sarcastic men'. Sometimes it is too true. Very well written.

love the trip this takes from young boy to manhood!

Ah, growing up - or not.
Nicely done.

Guess reasons change but actions don't as we grow up ! Good one :)

The desire to hurl stones at obstacles real or imaginary is the whole thing. Beautifully done.

Some little boys don't grow up. It is better that way. If only they would still throw those stones at the moon.
p.s. I throw mine across the water trying to make them skip.

Wisely done, love it!

They never give up do they :( so we cannot say 'when will you ever grow up?'
Very nicely done and draws attention to the point!!
Cheers!! :)

Crisp and smart.

Such primitive impulses. Where do they originate and where do they end?
I love the image of the moon as a fulcrum for the poem. Beautiful write!

Like the way your writing had the same picture at different ages.
