Poem - The Wooden Spoon

I showed the child the wooden spoon

She laughed and said;-

“That is a modernist

symbol of oppression

whilst you may view it with nostalgia

using it on me

will result in legal action

and withdrawal of your grandparent privileges

I will also be alienated

But that is nothing new"

I bit hard on the spoon

to vent my dissatisfaction

with the post modernist regime

resolving myself to continued celibacy

to prevent a recurrence
