IPYPIASM -Post Christmas Reds




I've done IPYPIASM (aka International Put Your Poem In A Shop Month). Read all about   IPYPIASM
 
The question is: does a bank qualify as a shop?







  Oh well, what the heck, I did it anyway.
Tucked it neatly behind the lodgement dockets - hint, hint. 






And then left, head down, as fast as I could.

Mari, its easy to see why you're a former bank official! Wonderful poem, wonderful placement - where was it by the way?

Hey Mari, what about the security cameras???
Then again if they offer a reward for identifying the perpetrator I might just be tempted, due to my own penurious circumstances!! must call in tomorrow!

Hi Niamh B - loved taking part in your challenge. Oh the buzz when I walked out that door, unspotted! Thanks for the mention on your blog too, by the way.

The Bug - thank you. I was just lucky twas so busy no one noticed the madwoman with the camera -or at least I don't think they did

Mari G said...

Hi Peter - Thanks for kind words (esp about my poem, coming from a poet of your stature)
Shall I just say it was my "local" bank in case Eileen decides to spill the beans...
Hi Eileen - let me know how big the reward, I might just turn myself in!

Thank you, Kate.
Will be avoiding the bank for more reasons than one for the next few weeks!
Happy New Year!

Thanks Niamh.
Loved your "New Irish Writing" poem by the way.

A very happy new year to you and yours, may it be a wonderful one.

Hi Susannah. I actually went into the bank again today & found myself peering around in case someone was watching out for me!
Glad you like the poem.
Many happy returns!

Mari, great poem and one I can very much relate to, "I've taken my inner child shopping", only "I've taken my inner child shopping, inner self, outer self, middle aged self, also spent enough for a few life times, and just to feel youthful shopped for the lost shopping days" thus my living arrangements. As they say, "no pockets in shrouds"... Olive
