The e-lectricty bill

I remember when

all the lights went out in our house,

due to an unpaid electricity bill.

All my sister & I

could find in the house

were birthday candles.

But each time my mom would light one, 

one of us would make a wish

& blow it out. 


Mom got angry & told us to sing a song instead,

so we 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.
