CUTLERY DILEMMA

Hello folks, I am your loyal fork, you can call upon me and rely on me for all your meals, but you the fish knife, are always smelly, and therefore having being shaped Many centuries ago, to be away from your face, So that your nose did not have to brace Itself, and your mouth was prepared to swallow, This unsavory taste, And therefore there was no waste, No fridges or coolers in those days, Had to invent harsher, but proper dining ways. The soup spoon, seems somewhat tubby, And looks a little, as did mummy, But ouch, she wouldn’t like that, She was only just a little bit fat! But you, the steak knife, who do most of the work, As you cut through rump, sirloin, pork or fillet, Your duties like a military man, you never do shirk, You master all foods proudly, we, the rest of The cutlery in the drawer salute you, Deserving of your Officer’s rank, And we always rally to your defense, and flank Each side of the dinner plate, In every continent, country or state. But who is the flirty one in the cutlery drawer Why, the dessert spoon of course, Used puuuurfectly seductively, To scoop up deserts, I, says the dessert spoon, make men drool, As I lift my self erotically, to my mistress’s mouth, Leaving some ice cream on me, which She licks with her tongue, I assist her mischievous Acts of eating with me, As I enjoy the electric sensual romantic mood, I’m no bodies fool! Hey what about me, said the butter knife, as I slip And slide through butter, and spread this indulgence With lots of calories and love on your bread, And of course dear little tea spoon, Who stirs sugar and milk in your coffee or tea, Don’t forget me! So this dilemma as to who is the most Important in the cutlery drawer, Is easily solved All eating utensils are equally involved.

Wow, this poem could be a script for a Disney movie, something akin to 'Beauty and the Beast' where all the cutlery can talk, and have personalities. like in your Poetry. Left a comment on your 'Sunshine Smile'

You often manage to come up with the most creative topics, Jenny, and you put them across in your typical style of thought and writing. In this case you have used personification together with a dash of wit to give different cutlery their due. ~ I hope hope you are keeping well my friend. Take care. ~ Warm regards & Hugs // paul

Wow! Jennifer, This is so well written and creative. I have never seen a write about cutlery quite like this before. I really enjoyed the personal touch. You made each utensil come to life. I enjoyed it very much. Well done. I appreciate you letting me know about what’s going with you. I want you to know that I'm sending well wishes from my heart to your heart. I’m praying for a speedy recovery, and that everything is smooth sailing my friend from across the pond:-) Alexis

Thank-you my dear friend - I had a post- op visit with my specialist today, and he seems happy and has told me that maybe I won't need a 2nd op. for my left foot. Thank-you for your prayers and kind wishes - i can feel your encouragement and compassion coming through strong from across the pond, blessings and hugs, Jennifer.
