Magpie 139



DIALOGUE AT MIDNIGHT

"Waste of electricity's obscene.
Turn off the light! We must think Green!"
"I've got no time for politics.
 But still, you're right. Now, where's that switch?"

They turned the light off. In the gloom
They stumbled blindly round the room.
Bumped into things, and tripped, and swore,
And ended up upon the floor.

"This is no good, The answer's plain.
We'll have to turn it on again."
"No no! We can't.Had you  not thought?
We're burglars! We could get caught!"


(A very poor effort at the end of a bad week. But thanks, all the same to, Tess at Magpie Tales)

  1. After walking my forehead into a sharp point on the edge of a bookcase, with the lights off at my house last night, I have great empathy for your environmental burglars. Thank you for sharing this, Frances, and I hope your next week is much better. =D
