About The Poem

During Lockdown, I slept more, I ate more and my imagination was more active. My poem, “Stranger” is an example of my imagination at work.

The Poem

Last night a stranger tried to move into my house

He crawled in through the cat flap

Then used a bicycle pump to infllate himself

To normal size

He opened the door

And banged 2 wooden cases on the floor


He said, “What’s for breakfast?”

The cat said, “Kippers”

He said, “Sod that for a game of soldiers”

He picked up his cases

He said, “Goodbye” to the cat

Then knocked on the house next door.
