Someone once said to me, Expect the Unexpected.
It seemed daring at the time so I took it on board.
The only problem was because I expected the Unexpected all the time I wasn’t really surprised when it happened.
It was expected, right?
Life was losing its surprise factor.
I felt heavy as a watermelon.
My counsellor suggested — wait for it — Expect only the Expected.
So I do,
When the Unexpected happens I light up like a lantern
twinkle like a star.
It wasn’t expected, right?

YOU ARE PURE GENIUS!
Expected or unexpected, your poems are a joy to read.

well, you’re going to like my next offering ‘The Well-Read Salmon’ once I get a suitable illustration. I’ve had a few street artists have a go at it without success. I’m on the lookout for a quirky illustrator. Pity Tenniel has passed away 😦 anyhow I probably wouldn’t be able to afford him 🙂
