A day in a night

Roman days and nights

clashed with tropical cyclone.

Reports of extensive damage

to households and businesses.

Deadly wind storms now

wreak the local region.

News at six fifteen.

Emergency rescue services stretched

to breaking point while

local services seek reinforcements.

Switch off television and

go to sleep. Dreams

of unicorns being rescued

by SES workers chastising

it for going out

in such temperamental weather.

Unicorn apologises but says

it was only doing

what it was supposed

to do because it

was my dream.

SES guy tells me

off for dreaming disaster.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.

    1. Lol. They do but it gets buried under the other more entertaining stuff. Cheers.

      EDIT: When it’s all day and night, non-stop, well…luckily I don’t watch much tv. But I still have dreams of it. Must be me.
