worn around the necks of the homeless or the
As you use it to unsuccessfully
stab into your newborn calf, bloody raw
you imagine this spork, your new friend

  1. haha i enjoyed this a lot. I liked the original poem because it was odd and I didn't really understand it.with this rendition you do a good job with the combination of satire with the image of a fork wearing a padded helmet. Classic!

  2. Wow, you're right! Very interesting!

  3. There was a great deal of humor in this piece, making it extremely enjoyable for the reader. I love how you played off the original image of the fork and made it your own. Great job :)

  4. "He's so 'special' it's always put in quotes"
    I like that line a lot. As well as the image of the fork in the helmet. Great read!
