That Note from the Neighbours

We got a note from the young couple across the road

telling [ warning? ] us that they were holding a birthday bash

that day starting at two and going past midnight.

And, no, we were not invited.

We braced ourselves for the worst.

A few cars appeared around six, the last time we checked.

We did hear a car door slam at nine

& some intemperate laughter on the front porch a little later

& that was it.

No hordes of SUV’s. no gate crashers, no raised voices,

no loud thumping music.& no need to call the number

I set aside for the cops.

The Bacchanalia clearly hadn’t arrived.

We went to bed a little disappointed.

  2. thank you for nominating me; it has been my third nomination this year. I’ve thought about it each time but I’m really not that interested. I’m just happy to keep blogging, revealing bits of myself along the way , and engaging with my fellow bloggers. I have revealed personal aspects under ‘About Me: An Update’ at the top of my blog. I hope you’re not too disappointed but in reality I’m a pretty ordinary bloke 🙂
