The Moonlight Flit

The Moonlight Flit

 

What fools we were.

We should have taken rental in advance.

But they looked innocent enough;

A nice young couple. So we took a chance.

 

It was unfurnished.

They spent several days moving their stuff;

Just a few sticks of furniture.

In fact it all looked pretty rough.

 

It must be said,

They started on a family with indecent haste;

Almost as though their time was running out

And much too valuable to waste.

 

Then, one fine day,

I noticed there was nobody at home.

They’d done a moonlight flit.

Our birds had flown.
