(Headnote: Spike is the little dog; Big Dog is the big dog. She learned what a eunuch is from watching Black Adder on dvd.)
The kid comes in to the kitchen last night and says to me, "Do you want to hear an appalling poem I have just written?"
"I'm always up for appalling poetry," I say. "Shoot."
She stands straight and puts on her poetry face, which is poised and very cute. Then she recites: "Spikey is a eunuch / A one-eyed eunuch. / Big Dog is a eunuch too."
