Senior’s Home

The loving son stopped by

With coffee and scones

Just to check.

He noticed potatoes

In the window and

Grew concerned.

It wasn’t a normal

Thing to have sticks

Protruding from 

Wrinkled tubulars.

The loving son enquired.

“Propagation,” she shrugged.

And went on to explain

The benefits the potato

Gave the twig.

He checked again,

“And they’re growing,”

He exclaimed,

With too much 

Enthusiasm.

She wondered what

Else the son

Had mis-

understood.
