Should you have laughed so at the cruel sport?Should I have overleapt the horny moon?
And what about the other dish and spoon,
the ones abandoned that night (on a shelfand in a drawer, respectively) to sortthe mess out and go on with damaged lives?Does what they did remind you of yourself?At first they dated other dishes, knivesand forks, but, while attractive in their shine,these tended to lie, slice, or even pierce.In time, though, Spoon and Dish met, became friends,and grew to trust each other with a fineand lasting love.
Their exes, playing fierceand fast, twice more divorced, met violent ends.
