Bus Meeting at 19:00

Argent was having an excellent week at the office last week, and thus set us the following Poetry Bus task: Meetings.
So here you are, a whole day early but I've got meetings all Monday:

The hour has come.
They're waiting
They turn in circles in front of the closed door
Beyond the door, the Place where they gather
at the appointed time.
Suddenly, one spies the woman approaching
The Boss is coming!
She's coming!
Get ready!
The jingle of the keys excites them
they leap over each other rushing into the kitchen
It's Catfoodtime.
Catch the Bus here!

Very cute! I didn't see that one coming.

Oh, that is so charming - I can see the scenario so clearly (and live it twice daily)

Niamh B said...

the cats get into everything don't they?!!
Fun one

Argent said...

Yay for catfoodtime! My two assemble in much the same way at that particular time of day!

Carolina Linthead said...

Ha! Pets are so delightfully anticipatory, dancing to the sound of keys, or perhaps an electric can opener.

And here's me thinking the animals were always boss? :)

Yup, you had me hook line and sinker...
