I’d Like to Report a Leak

Yes, hello, I'd like to report
A leak. Yes, the effluent.
It's seeping, I'm afraid.
No, I've tried moving
To higher ground. The smell.
Gawd. Can you send someone?
When, did you say? Nothing
sooner? Well, I suppose
That will have to do. And no,
I'm not interested in taking
Your quick survey.


I’ve retired after a career teaching law. I divide my time now between Athens, Georgia, in the States and the south coast of Ireland.
