Table Manners At All Times - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)
rules for growing up in large families?
first up best dressed last up nothing left
unless you want to be styled in worst
hand me downs torn worst worn out
eat first eat fast when food is around...
hungry mouths make short work of food
left overs are as rare as lost diamonds
watch a family live in house feeding frenqy
watch park wolves take down deer kill
watch sharks in feeding frency devour fish...
watch older siblings growl hog best food
grounded for putting impolite elbows on table
no rule was utensils used on food not others...
