Is it safe to ask? he asked
Ask what? she asked.
You know he said.
You’ve lost me there, she sighed.
She had hoped for something more direct;
But what she heard, was what she feared
So with his faint words
He lost her there.
First time grandmother-to-be
Already on edge
She’s sitting at the window
It’s got to come today
She’s sits waiting patiently
She needs that replacement kettle
So she can have
A calming cup of tea
n.b. What a time for the old kettle to blow and the parcel service to screw up!
n.n.b. Fank the lawd, the kettle arrived.
