The Fifth Commandment
by Spencer Reece

The numbering varies in some faiths, but in the context of Spencer Reece's poem "The Fifth Commandment", let us assume he's referring to the suggestion that one should "Honour thy father and thy mother." How does the narrator of this selection from Reece's 2015 Griffin Poetry Prize shortlisted "The Road to Emmaus" venerate mater and pater? Oh, you'll be charmed at how he does it.
