CLIMBING UP THE WRONG STAIRS?

CLIMBING UP THE WRONG STAIRS?

The young boy liked Dorothy Sayers,

John Creasy and other purveyors…

Of humanity

Murder with glee,

Characters—distictive players.

A moment’s notice the boy thought,

He was reading not what he ought…

Serious things

Sometimes needing wings

To soften a sadness onslaught!

The TIME SPENT with each volume,

He had to cut down, to make room…

For Math homework

Which he tended to shirk,

While reading till morning in his room!
