Room 42

April 7, 2011

The vinegar
in the bottle
on the table
of room 42
has six mothers.

One Response to “Room 42”

  1. I’ve heard rumors of room 42
    Witches are said to hide there
    Sphinx like in the shadows
    Watching for careless children
    Or world weary travelers
    Casting their web-like spells
    They entrap the unwary
    And chant out their riddles
    As requirement to speak.
    Answer them wrong
    And you pay the price
    But a reply that pleases them
    May be well received
    With an unspoken wish granted
    When you least expect it.
