MRS PERKINS SAVES THE DAY....IN A NOVEL WAY

poem by: Darryl Ashton
Written on Sep 06, 2017

Mrs Perkins loved to read,
She also liked to write.
To solve Mrs Christie's
mysteries
Would give her much 
delight.


The books of Rendell,
James and Tey,
Provided many a thrill,
While Wentworth, Sayers
and Allingham
Gave her certain joy
until


One day she thought:
'Perhaps I could 
'Write my own mystery
play.'
And so she set about
the task
At once without delay.


'I'll have some shady
characters,
'All could have done
the deed.
'A country house, a
secret room,
'Some poison I will
need.'


So Mrs Perkins wrote
her play
With all the skill she'd
got,
Although at times she
wondered if
She might have lost
the plot.


And now, at last, the
play is done,
The work of her maturity.
It's in a drawer, till 
some kind soul
Will save it from obscurity.
