One Very Jealous Fork

April 20, 2010
You all should know Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon,
The little dog laughed to see such a sport
And the dish ran away with the spoon.
But…
Did you know about the fork and the spoon?
They used to be together,
Two birds of a feather.
(Yes I know they’re silverware,
But I really couldn’t care.)
We never did know;
Why did the spoon go?
All I can say,
What a Valentine’s Day!
On their date, the spoon and the fork—
Yes, of course, they ordered the pork!
The day came, but oh how I wish
That the spoon never met the smooth-talking dish.
The dish charmed one away,
Oh what can I say?
Valentine’s Day brought the fork’s doom.
Alas, the dish ran away with the spoon.
All that was left… One very jealous fork.
A tip from me, don’t order the pork,
Unless you wish
To be whisked away by a dish.
However…
There is a little more to this tale
Than just a relationship failed.
Although this may seem a little wild,
They had had a love child.
Don’t be silly, it was the spoon and the fork.
The name of their child, of course, was the spork.
Now a constant reminder of a love long forgotten,
The spork may never know, and so, never feel rotten.
The End
