The Truck

I see the truck parked two doors down, outside the empty house.
I wonder briefly if someone is moving in, then think no more about it.
As I finish my after dinner brandy my darling wife smiles at me.
Did you notice the old clapped-out white truck in the lane?
Yes, why?
It belongs to a transport company from Marseille.
They transport people’s belongings in that?
She giggles, I suppose you could say that!
Oh, is someone moving in?
No, she laughs, someone is moving out! They dispose of unwanted goods.
But for who? That house is empty.
For me!
So what unwanted goods do you have?
You, sweetheart.
Me? What do you mean?
They dispose of bodies.
What?
Did you enjoy your last brandy, my love?

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/

    Actually I was there. He did enjoy his last brandy. He knew about her plans (he’s friends with the driver of the truck) and she’ll be the one enjoying her final drink!!!!! 🙂 xx
