Derelict Houses.....

Derelict houses all filled with mouses,

parliaments sit in their rafters;

the houses all groan as wind-whistlers moan

piercing their frames with cold drafters.

The houses cry 'foul!' and throw in the towel,

when parliament issues decrees;

'Chickens we're not, have you houses forgot

that we are permitting this breeze?'

The derelict houses all filled with mouses

gang up on the dictating owls;

together they make an earthquake-like shake

dispersing those self-loving fowls!


Another great poetry prompt from dverse poets. This time we are invited to write about a house - not one from childhood memory but rather from imagination or by looking at an unfamiliar house etc etc. What came to mind for me was this whimsical poem!
