piss take

pointed out instructively

not to turn-that-corner


a usual habit

I was being strongly advised to break

lest once around it again


I would have condoned

the increase in boring repetition. How strange a request!


Yet, all this they said, so,

following their all too convincing suggestions

went the long way

side-walked with haunted house figures way

cobbled with bones of the dead

while concentrating on the distant lure of sunlight

as I trembled around void-mouths


Only then in overcoming

and performing my last act of fear

was it to be declared

that I had passed the test

of having fallen for the oldest gag in their

in-joke book


Annoyed, embarrassed being duped

I looked for any available reason

to withdraw my presence

at the speed of light from this scene of mockery.

a somewhat bizarre but very much likeable piece Leon.
