HEARD A CLICK ON THE DOOR, CONFIDENT,
HIM I COULD RECOGNISE BY HIS SWEET SCENT.
“PAPA!” RUSHED I IN PERSON
A DAUGHTER BETTER, THAN ANY SON.
“BROUGHT THE GROCERY LOVE’
MEAT WAS AS USUAL A BIT HARD TO GET BY
HE CALLED TO MY MOTHER MARVELOUS.

(CUT TO FOUR HOURS LATER)
“SUPPER ‘S READY! COME DOWN QUICKLY
THE BROTH TODAY HAS BEEN PREPARED RICHLY”
EXITED I HURRIED TO THE DINING PLACE
AND BIT DOWN THE DELICACY
WITHOUT LEAVING A TRACE.
MEAT WAS RARE IN THE HOUSEHOLD,
MOSTLY IT WAS JUST VEGETABLES COLD.
(RAPING THE MEAT, BETWEEN MOUTHFULS
OUT HAD COME A CLOSET SECRET,
THAT FALLEN HAD I TOO FOR
THE PROVERBIAL BOY NEXT DOOR,
ALAS PAPA’S SILENT GAZE
BOUND ME LIKE A CORSET.)

GASTRONOMIC DUTIES DONE,
BACK TO MY HAUNT I WENT,
DECIDED TO CHAT UP MY FRIEND-
“HEY I JUST BOUGHT THE ‘MAN IN THE BOX’ RECORD!”
“I THINK ‘ALICE IN CHAINS’ IS HOT!”
“MORE LIKE THE FRONTMAN YOU MEAN...”
(GIGGLE……………BACKGROUND)

(SERIOUS)
“ANOTHER MISSING IN THE NEIBOURHOOD,
WHAT ‘S HAPPENING? ANY CLUE YET?”
“FATHER RECKONS ITS JUST PLAIN WAYWORDNESS”
“ANY WAY THE CASE SURE FREAKS ME OUT.
PEOPLE GOING MISSING! FAMILIES TAKING,
SUDDEN VACATION AND SABBATICALS A SUDDEN”
“THE WHOLE NEIBOURHOOD DOES AN ANSWER SEEK
TO THE BODY FOUND LAST WEEK”

(NEXT DAY AT SCHOOL)
“HEY MISS GOODY TWO SHOES,
CARE GO ON A CRUISE” (WINKS)-ONE.
“OH COME ON! WHAT ‘S TO CHOOSE,
AMONG TEACHER BLUES,
AND THE TRUANT GOOSE?”-ANOTHER.
“NO I MUST’NT ‘CAUSE THERE ARE RULES.”
“DON’T ACT ABSURD, YOU YOURSELF
DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY YOU HAVE SO MANY OF THEM”
(SNICKER)
“AND WHY YOUR FATHER BEHAVES LIKE A NAZI CHIEF!”
“DON’T BE MEAN, IT’S JUST THAT I’M NOT ALLOWED
TO EAT ANYTHING OTHER THAN HOME FOOD.”

“NAZI! NAZI! NAZI! NAZI!”

(SOME TIME LATER)
“HOW’S CUTIE? EH…”
(BLUSHING)
“YOU MEAN MY NEIGHOUR?
NOT IN TOWN FOR THE WHILE.”
“HIM TOO!”(WONDER)
“SEE YOU LATER ‘MEAT DAY’ AT HOME TONIGHT.”
[FAR FAR AWAY THE ‘BOY NEXT DOOR’S’
EYES OPENED AND SENSED DARKNESS.
HE SUDDENLY REALISED THAT
THEY HAD BEEN OPEN ALL ALONG
AND HE WAS, LONG GONE…]

(TWO YEARS LATER)
STORMED ‘INNOCENCE’ (WHICH WAS GONE)
INTO HER ALLY’S ABODE,
“ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! TODAY I BREAK THE CODE”
TOOK A BITE OF MEAT (ALIEN IT SEEMED)
AND UNDERSTOOD.
HER HEART SKIPPED A BEAT,
AS NEVER IN HER LIFE HAD SHE EATEN MEAT…
