THE LIBRARY.

Sheltering from the rain,
boffins in halfmoon glasses
sniff musky tomes in secret.
Retired fingers search for life
amongst the faded pages of obscurity.
Tight lipped librarian
squeaks across the polished floor
and glares at him who dares to cough.
"Ssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssh"!

  6. OY!!! Don't know about YOUR libraries, but OUR libraries (Wirral) haven't enforced the 'shush!' rule for years and years, attract all sorts of people and have LOADS of gorgeous new books coming in all the time! Nice pome, but please change title to 'The Library 1910' *shakes fists... but in a friendly way*
