spare rod

the spoils of childhood
by Halifax

bend over
hold still
stop fidgeting

I haven’t even
touched you yet

move your hands
or by God
I’ll hit them too

I don’t want to hear it
you had this coming
so quit your sobbing

oh boo who
I barely spanked you

what a cry baby
get over it already

there’s more
where that came from

I held back
took it easy on you

wish you could’ve seen
my mom taking a switch
lighting up my backside

that was something
worth all this fuss
I still feel it
