Silver Spoons – Author William Wright, Jr.


I reap the ashes

In silver spoons


The vermin

That crawl, deep within


They worm


In the grit of passersby


The ruinous mounds

Of wayward strangers

Charred, to a hopeless pulp


By spoonful’s

I thrive

Heartily gorging

On distant trials


In spoonful’s

I join the mad


By their every

Heartless whim

  1. I never thought about chemistry in school
    I never thought about silver as a general rule
    Chemical element Ag is from the Latin “argentum” meaning “shiny or white.”
    It is found in the Earth’s crust and is a conductor of light
    The highest of electrical conductivity in the Earth’s pure might
    Imagine this metal in its purest, free form in all of our sight.
    An unexpected lesson in the glory and mystery
    of the blue Earth’s vast and beautiful history
    Now what about that “silver spoon?”
    Its definition can be revealed soo.
    It is a lesson in expanding our mind
    to challenge, see what it can find.
    Push yourself to find out more
    That is what our lives are for!
