How Long?

How long? (image c/o

It had been a while since

any plumber had been down

the cellar to check the pipes

the young apprentice

sent down the cellar

was shocked and surprised

to see what she saw

networks of webs

weaved by the occupants

who had taken the place over

It wasn’t the plumber they were frightened of

more the landlord

for they’d been living down there

rent free for years.
