The power of books, or, What to do to avoid a spanking

***

It seems to me,

when I was a kid,

I was always

getting into some

sort of mischief.

***

I was always

getting caught, too,

and, then,

soundly spanked.

***

“Just wait til your father comes home!” My mother would say to me.

***

And I wondered,

What could I do to avoid any further spankings?

***

And, then,

the answer came to me, 

and it came to me,

in the form of a book,

… and it was good.

***

And, so, knowing a

spanking was imminent,

I went to the study,

and found the thickest

book on the shelf, and

then

concealed that book

in the

back-side of my pants.

***

Then, later,

as fore-told, my father

came home from work,

heard what I had done,

stormed into my room,

dropped me over his knee,

pulled down my pants,

***

and, then

got lost in a good book.

***

“Son, this is going to

hurt me more than

it’s going to hurt you …

***

… They call me, Ishmael …”

.

Oh bee, where is thy sting?

All my
