What have you fettled today?
« on: 13 July, 2022, 08:14:53 am »
An emergency trip to Edinburgh, to fettle the flat.
To be read in a Pam Ayres voice, (but the metre is inspired by the railway pomes of TS Eliot and WH Auden):

Message in Whatsapp
Neighbours in pain

The smoke alarm's sounding
I'm off on the train

Smoke alarm silenced
No fire was found

Just as well really
Too long to respond

Students have been here
The place is a rout

Dishwasher emptied
Bins taken out

Lunch from the Deli
Fresh as you please

Run for the train
And I make it with ease!
