In our middle flat the young
couple were so excited to get
their own house on the nearby
military base still close to town
for her good job as he started
his military job after his training.
So exciting to pay a low rent,
to save for their own home,
a wedding, a honeymoon even.
They rejoiced over their new future.
Before they move they face a
large hurdle. Their carport
storage locker is jam packed
with car parts, mechanics’ tools,
oils, sprays, cleaners all flowing
out into the cabinet in the carport
and boxes beside it, topped by
two huge piles of spare tyres….
….all to be packed up aw well as
the usual household contents.
