Looking at a line full of laundry

Salford 1st November

Response to a Writeclub Prompt by Inky

There’s a breeze tonight

a perfect westerly

don’t need to check the weather forecast

and i’ll tell you why

tween lark hill place and ackers st

the mangles have been working overtime

and Mrs Protheroe’s washing

is hanging on the line

The kids clothes are flying at half mast

while the young ladies are flying like flags

and Mr Protheroe’s socks are swaying in breeze

along with his Oxford Bags

Now you might be concerned for the safety

for the Protheroe’s washing on line

but the washing’s been clipped on quite tightly

and the Policeman says everything’s fine

There’s only one thing of concern now

and its to do with Mrs Protheroe’s suit

for try as they might – the kids could use it as a kite

and it’ll be hanging in the air like a ‘chute!
