Tales of electricity

I remember

when the

electricity

went out in

our house,

and the only candles

my mom

could find

were

birthday candles.

***

But each time

she would light

a birthday candle,

one of us kids

would make

a wish and blow it out. 

***

Of course,

our mom got angry

and told us to

do something

else, instead

Like, maybe sing a song,

***

So, together we

all sang

“happy birthday”

to the dark

  1. Hilarious! I wrote more in my last reply but then wordpress made me log in and now it’s floating around cyberspace only to attach itself to some random post and totally confuse those who read it.
