Influenced by the full moon,
Little old ladies seek action soon…
Pull the fire alarm
Not meaning harm,
But enjoy watching fire trucks zoom!
From my back window I’d see,
Pandemonium filled them with glee…
Every month then
They’d try it again,
The psychiatric ward staff weren’t pleased.
Why was I living so close?
All professional staff had no choice…
My Dad was a Chaplain
And as it happened,
My parents had help watching us two boys!
