Pixie perked up when

the rent man was due.

He came every Tuesday

on the dot at two.

 

At two fifteen, he was

nowhere to be seen.

Her payment complete

he’d vanished from the scene.

 

On Wednesday she changed pace

when the gas man knocked,

as Dora from next door,

his van, had clocked.

 

Knowing she was being timed

only added to her stress,

so she paid him in the hall,

in full – well, more or less.

 

Friday was her busy night

Two both came together-

The Pools man and the Milkman –

the dog she had to tether.

 

Saturday she rested,

her bills all paid in full.

She welcomed hubby home

from his trip to Istanbul.
