A Journey That Very Few May Take

Headline in local paper advertising its Baby of the Year contest: Make Sure You Enter Your Child.

Enter women under their married name, as it said on a list of library regulations spotted by Kingsley Amis.

Sticking with the League of Gentlemen-style sicko kiddy dimension though, I’m reminded of a grotesque poem by Michael D. Higgins:

To see your seed
in every child’s eye
[…] requires a journey
that very few may take.

{quotation ends}

Let’s just say I very much hope so.
