Spanking is not always a punishment.
There are Ritualized Spankings that are not punishment.
I think it is fun and funny.
According to an Old FairTail,
Children are all Spanked Soundly and Sent to Bed.
There was an old woman
who lived in a shoe
She had so many children
She didn’t know what to do
She gave them some broth
Without any bread,
And spanked them all soundly
And sent them to bed.
I know it sounds horrible.
It is a night time Mantra.
For some children going to bed is a major fucking deal.
One child can be so many children a person does not know what to do
"I'm Hungry." They beg with big sad eyes.
Every night they want a before bed meal. Get used to it Mom and Dad.
It's called desert.
Some nights it might be Broth without bread.
That little tune can help Children that have no parents to help them go to bed.
The words get changed to fit the conditions.
The words have been changed in many homes.
In many homes the words are completely unknown.http://www.poetryfoundation.org/article/177973
That poem is not the correct poem for children that fall asleep at the table with their faces in the food.
There must be a poem, just for them.
Rock a Bye Baby? Maybe?Rock-a-Bye Baby; In the Tree Top.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rock-a-bye_Baby“Rockabye Baby, in the treetop
Don't you know a treetop
is no safe place to rock?
And who put you up there,
and your cradle too?
I think someone down here
has got it in for you!”
by Shel Silverstein
Violent Bed Time Spankings? Or; Line them up.
Check them each. Hair Up? ok Teeth Brushed? ok
PJ's clean and on right side out? ok
Spank that one. Next!
Abusive? ech. maybe.
I knew a child that was so hard to put to bed,
I simply turned off all the lights.
I was an Adult! I could reach the Breaker Box!
Jesus Christ! It would make that child mad!
I could get away from her in the dark. So funny.
That did it. She would go to sleep. So would I!
Were you difficult, too? Poor you!
They spanked you until you cried yourself to sleep?
Every night until you got the clue? Did you ever get the clue?
I lived in a home like that, too. Transgressions were punished with extreme measures.
I lived there quite a while before I discovered that Truth. You?
Apparently you were Horrible! What did you do?
You get to swap stories with your Christian Upbringing Friends from the Private Christian Homeschooling League?
You are a lucky man. You are a man. correct?
I met some young women that had parents that were physically present, sometimes and intellectually absent often.
Those two girls had to figure so many things out all by themselves.
Some times they got wrong answers. They often Nailed It!
Not all children are as trustworthy as those two were as children.
Not all young adults are as trustworthy as those to women are.
Have you over come the tortured in compulsions?
What were you compelled to do under threat of physical torture?
Brush your teeth and go to Bed! Did they have to strip you at the door?
Did you and you dog come home covered with Poision Oak oil and get on your sister's bed?
You parents may have spanked you to prevent your sister from exacting punishment.Vengeance is mine.
sayith the parent.
"I spanked him. You leave him alone!"
jeeze. Did you have Poison Oak, too?
Siblings can be as much or more of a danger to a child than parents that punish minor transgressions.
"Dad swatted me for stepping on the Cat. Fuck Dad."
Did your Sister chase you into the bathroom and threaten to kill you if you ever come out?
Was she waiting? What did your parents do to help?
Oh, Children; I have heard some funny stories.
She looks like an Angel?
You are lucky if all the children had some fear of at least some adult, somewhere.
Hence; Jesus. or; God, if you will.
Everyone bow to the One True King.
He will get you, if your Brother does not live through the beating?
Life is, just, an exchange of electrons; It is up to us to give it meaning.
We are all in The Gutter.
Some of us see The Gutter.
Some of us see The Stars.

Those that want to Know; Know.
Those that do not Know; Don't tell them.
They do terrible things to people that Tell Them.
