Why Is The House Burning Down?
Why is the house burning down?
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Do you care to repeat that?
When the fire chief arrived,
The occupants assumed he was not qualified.
Based upon his
They said they would wait
Until a new chief is appointed.'
Wait for what?
The house is ruined
What 'new' chief?
He 'is' the chief
If you wish to
'Approach' them with that explanation
Perhaps you can convince them of that
The told me, the others 'and' the chief
They were entitled to have their expectations met.
If they have to stand there for the rest of their lives
They will do it.'
