He is no longer
Merely a boy, but the wolf
Shares the same design
Shaggy black fur in
The shape of a wolf adorns
The back of this thing
The fans -- the punters
Pay for supernatural
Spectacle it seems
They lean close and taunt
Laughing and sneering at the
Creature trapped within
Another howl slips
From the caged beast, and Ethan
Feels the gin rise up
Running for toilets
He passes by a number
Of girls wearing ears
Thick and furry ears
On small headbands as if they
Were werewolves themselves
The toilet is the
Latest in technology
Can't admire now
He wonders why now
This has upset him so
Perhaps things changed?
Vending machine mints
Taste of cocoa and sugar
Sick-sweet in his mouth
