The Cabal

 

The dishwasher whispered

To the toaster one day

There’s crumbs in my workings

In an irritating way

 

The toaster responded

With a mouth full of bread

The faults not my own

It’s the humans I said

 

The kettle then screamed

My ass it’s a glow!

Stop bickering this minute

My lid’s gonna blow!

 

The oven just smiled

A long gentle burn

He knew what was coming

He’d just wait his turn

 

Then a cold laden breeze

Filled the room with despair

With the fridge door ajar

They knew who was there

 

“Breakfast is ready”

Came the bone chilling call

And the hoards then descended

On the appliances cabal

Sorry God!

 

My Mother never left me

Those many years ago

With my Father by her side

She’s watching Heaven grow.

 

I know she thinks St Peter

Should polish up his act

Those politicians he let in

Really should go back.

 

Angel’s wings are handed out

To the many and the few

But really those deserving

Don’t get the all they’re due.

 

Heaven is a place

Of peace and gentle love

There my parents rest you see

To give blessings from above.

 

Time will come I know it

When Mom will run the show

God has done a bang up job

But Mother’s make it grow!
