Hour Eleven – Hilarity

Hilarity

We looked at each other
Across the table
As the grown-ups talked of serious matters

He raised one eyebrow
I stuck out my tongue
Our cheeks grew red from holding it in

A sudden eruption!
We squealed and shrieked
And fell off our chairs in emancipation

The grown-ups eyed us
Underneath their stern faces
They must have longed to roll on the floor too
