Excuse Notes

by Clive Donovan

Homework-eating dogs
A lost key
That sex I couldn’t
Drag myself away from
Knotty shoelaces
A skirt far gone/shirt spilt on
Late bus/missing button/stuck zip!
Unscheduled occurrence to do with
Incidental fried food
Plus our kitty needed
Extra-medical attention
Alarming incident
Requiring time
Something split
As yet uncertain
Too busy
Can’t come
