Cricket in Limbo

0 150

By Ash Lindop

Excuse me while I curl my quiff.

I’m neither flaccid, nor stiff,

but stuck in Limbo with a Cricket.

This Cricket leapt up with a giddy delight:

“Hey, you wanna’ fight?”

And I’m like:

“You’re a cricket, right?”


The Looking Glass became

Pint Sized.

And in my mind’s eye

not even time flies.


While graciously salacious

this Cricket may be,

I think it’s rather silly.

It is quite

the task

to stay


this mask.

They say we’ve all

gone mad here,

and that’s that!
