Totem

Yeah, a soft kitten

might more be my

totem rather than some

fierce wild animal, like

you and your great

bear or prancing stag.

Yep, we can’t all

be far-seeing magnificent

eagles or potent wolves.

Maybe otter or beaver

might be a reasonable

start or claim to

fame when standing before

the Great Spirit awaiting

a sign. But city

boy that I am,

maybe a cockroach or

a mouse or even

a centipede might better

represent me in this

Great Spiritual Totem Debate

now romping about somewhere.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
