The Fork Fell Twice

I have been writing poetry, fiction and short stories for many years and have completed a book of poems. I also enjoy comedy writing.


The fork fell twice

While I tried to eat some rice

I cooked curry chicken and it was incredibly nice

It was filled with flavour and spice

I was in such a hurry to gobble down the meal

That I could not hold the fork and it fell pass my knee

It fell to the ground which may have had germs

But i had no time to go get another fork while my stomach churns

I picked it up and dived into the food

But before i could make a lift it fell again like a haunted painting in a room

I gave it a stern look while it laid there on the floor

I was getting angry and would not take any more

I gave the fork a stern warning and told it to be still

Else i would replace it permanently and its new home would be the garbage bin

I picked it up again and spun it around

To see if it picked up any bugs off the ground

I dived into my curried chicken once more

And the fork remained still for sure

I enjoyed my meal that day

I love my fork and now it is here to stay.

You are right Pam...it did end well...the curry chicken went where it was suppose to go.

Yes Flourish, the fork needs a behavioral lesson.

I don't know about the fork, but I sure would like some curry chicken! CUTE.

I guess this was a magic fork that just had to learn to behave if it wanted a home. Alls well that ends well seems to apply here.

Reminded me of "The Teapot" by Anderson. Such magic is real.
