Shedding light on a problem.

It was the most expensive one of its kind in the shop

No second thought was given to not purchasing

We discussed this with a nod of approval in each other’s direction

It was made for that corner of the newly designed sitting room.


Egos can be bruised quite easily

But not as badly as when that accident occurs

It was not supposed to be this way

We positioned it correctly, but the Labrador!


He wasn’t told the aesthetics of the room was changed

Being his usual playful self as in he bounded –


That elegant lampshade and stand came crashing across my skull.
