A - Z APRIL 2013 - O



OLIVE
(Neighbour of Bill and Ellen)

She tweaked the net curtains back to the middle
Nodded sagely to herself as she thought, there’s trouble
Those brothers had such a hard time
It’s a wonder they didn't do any crime
She wonders what Bill gets up to on his computer
It’s such a shame he’s married and not a bachelor
She would have been quite a catch for such a chap
Ellen got there first and he was a feather in her cap
Il Divo were singing on their latest album
That was money well spent on her Bose Hi-Fi system
Rudely interrupting their dulcet tones came the beeping
Of the kitchen timer along with the smell of her cooking.
She’d take the cake round to Bill’s and hope for a cup of coffee
She’d chat away to him and talk bravely about her family.

  1. This made me smile as the image of the nosy curtain-twitching neighbour came to mind. But the last line made me intrigued to know more. Wonder why she would be talking "bravely" about her family?

  2. Bill seems like quite the catch. And if there are any leftover of that cake, I'd be happy to have Olive over for a good chat. (:

  4. Wow. Is she going with the idea that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach? And he is married, and she wants to discuss her private secrets with him? You have me very interested!

  5. Well done. I like the thought of the microwave beeping against the music.
