They found the letters to her lawyer in the old station wagon, in a battered chocolate tin shaped like a carousel.

Covered in dust and cobwebs after the extensive search of the house and yard, he sat down to read them.

His wife called out “Did the old bat say where the Money is?”

The Sun Maiden – A Poem written for Kira’s Sunday Scribbles

With violet eyes like gimlets,

she flies across the sky, 

looking down on all of us,

In splendour from on high.

Her gaze is far from friendly

she sees into men’s souls

and knows that caring for the planet

is far from our main goals.

Most humans pursue Money,

it is their first desire,

and the world can go on suffering,

it’s only cash that we require.

This vengeful maiden of the sun,

Knows that it’s us that is to blame,

So swift and nimble she shines on us

and we’ll soon perish in her flame.
