Spoons – Poetry Challenge Week #5

Oh the chance to play a few card games
What will the game be this time around
I remember some of the previous nights
Where all the cards ended up on the ground.

Oh someone wants to play Spoons again
Always a wild time to be had when we do
Playing always pits one against the other
And sometimes it gets crazy, this we knew.

Deal the cards and put the spoons in the middle
Once that goal is met the chaos will begin
One less spoon than hand that was dealt
So someone else will be sitting out again.

There it is, someone got the right cards
The frenzy as the spoons start to disappear
Two spying the only one that is left to be had
And Boom… Another kitchen table in need of repair.

  1. Never heard of that game…not only fun but informative. BTW-“Full Contact Cards”, does it require a helmet? 😉

      I will have to admit that having a few good sized boys at the table, 8 or 9 players, we did damage more than one kitchen table. But my parents, then our household when the children were growing up, always laughed it off. And we didn’t ever send anyone to the hospital, maybe a few bandages is all.

    Haven’t heard of the game Spoons in years; reminds me of younger days playing cards. Which I still love to play just don’t have the opportunity. GREAT WORK

  3. Haha I love the game spoons and you really did a good job capturing the craziness of it 🙂
