I did wonder how to explain your demise
as I made my way to the centre
“It got submerged.”
Nice and succinct.
Nevermind how I usually anthropomorphize you.
Sorry, Sammy. This can’t be helped.
They’ll think I’m crazy, otherwise.
Just don’t ask me how.
The young part-timer stared at me
Bushy-tailed and all
“So what exactly is wrong?”
I couldn’t lie.
“I dropped it in the toilet bowl.”
I could see a snigger in her eyes.
She scribbled some words on a form.
