In response to prompt : Abrupt
An Abrupt Question!
The little girl asked me abruptly, ‘Miss do you like teaching?’
Before I gave my reply, she hopped, skipped and vanished.
Although I couldn’t answer, it made me think. Do I like my job? I was unable to come up with an answer.
For days I pondered, times I thought,
What a sudden question I have no doubt.
I took a while to find a proper reply,
I’m sure she’d wonder and say oh my.
Then she’ll suddenly say, ‘Do you like us?’
Instantaneously I’ll say, ‘little girl it’s yes.’
She’d break into an unstoppable laughter,
And unexpectedly say, ‘I’ll also become a teacher!’
