Silver Spoon


Silver Spoon

By Shoeless Boy Wonder

Father Vulture’s Nursery Rhymes

 

This is a story of Nathan Spoon
Who was born to a family with several means
Wasn’t long till he gained his Goon
Things got swell when he hit his teens

Young Spoon started to buy up streams
Soon whole mountains of land
And he began his mines
Labor became in high demand

Though he kept all that was collected
The towns folk began to discuss
All but one idea was rejected
New fines and Spoon didn’t fuss

An ounce of silver for each person,
To be paid once a year,
They thought his mood would surely worsen
He just stood and nodded leaving nothing to fear

That night him and his Goon went to pay
Melting the silver down
They went from house to house on his way
Pouring the silver into mouths till they drown

Leaving a handle down the chin
Nate was very pleased with his Goon
Having finished they returned home with a grin
Now that everyone had a sliver spoon.
