Day 526: The Wicked Fairy at the Manger
UA Fanthorpe makes a good point here.
The Wicked Fairy at the Manger - UA Fanthorpe
My gift for the child:
No wife, kids, home;
No money sense. Unemployable.
Friends, yes. But the wrong sort –
The workshy, women, wimps,
Petty infringers of the law, persons
With notifiable diseases,
Poll tax collectors, tarts;
The bottom rung.
I think we’ll make it
Public, prolonged, painful.
'Right', said the baby, 'That was roughly
What we had in mind'.
