Korean Typhoon

Down the side street
across the road shrieking
gale force winds bend
lashing trees horizontal
close to the ground.
Huge gusts of rain
blast along the empty
street, cascade down
the window panes
like Niagara Falls.

The principal rings to say
the English Kindergarten
will be closed this morning
as the buses are unable
to collect the children.

Oh dear ! Korean mothers
want full value for every
cent of the fees they pay
for their children’s tuition
at the private English
kindergarten.

There will have to be a
Saturday lesson to make
up for the missed hours.
