Cow Tipping Press – Supper by Karon D.

I came from a family
of eight children
Meals were fun, exciting,
and dramatic
I remember how…

One night at the supper table
One of my brothers…
well, we had lamb for our main
meal—

We grew up on a farm
had a lamb for a pet
We were excited about the lamb
it was a delicacy

My dad made a comment: “This
Is Fritz.” He was joking.
My brother started crying.
Everybody else laughed!
But my brother took it seriously.
To this day my brother can’t eat
lamb.
