The One Thing

 by  Madelaine Nerson MacNamara  © 2013

At table my manners
Are a cause for concern.
I splay down, suction
Crumbs, juices, gravy
Or hold up saucy plates
Hoover them with my tongue.

I hear the voices wink:
"What would your Granny say?"
But that is the ONE thing
That's never worried me.
Didn't I guess you'd say:
"Go for it, my pirate!"
