The Bill Men

Today is a hot day
And public electric officials
Are here
On inquiry, I am
Told they're here
For this month's bill.

There are fierce hounds
Resting under the palm tree
And their owner, a patronizer
Of electricity is staring at them.
He makes a sign
And the dogs rose
Chasing the bill men.

He made another sign
And the hounds retreated
The bill men frightened
Stood but shaking
Frowning at the man
It was not deliberate
To set the dogs against them
But the hounds' owner
Had no money to pay.
