Mary brought the news

With her usual loud knock

I was still sleeping

George had died in the night

A heart attack she said

Fearfully

“I thought you should know”

She said

“With us being neighbours”

George the old chap living in the corner house

Who I had not spoken to for years

Who I exchanged smiles with and polite waves

From behind my speeding windscreen

Was dead,

I did not know he was ill.

I never stopped to ask

Or knocked on his door.
