Purple Spring Witch [rev] - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

Being the only one interested in sporting a sticker on
casual day, gave the boss an extra adhesive label to
remind her life is great - I celebrate the spring theme
wearing pink with flowers in my hair; waiting for lunch
to go outside with hydrangea umbrella & glittery scarf

Have checked my version in the Queen’s English of
our self-made “Sir” Mr B’s Afrikaans essay - realised
with glee his quaint lines do not allow a single perfect
rendition so my colleague and I present 2 completely
different texts - scintillating; such a wonderful world -

It rained last night - the weather conspired in creating
this unforgettable day; must carry lilac fan to complete
image of a Purple Spring Witch - newly released from
the Disc World Dungeon Dimensions, taking on all of
Hogwart’s Dementors sucking the joy from my quiet

Colleagues forlorn at their laptop screens, my yellow
flowers prevent Dementors from approaching, golden
auras shine in my place as legions of angels stop by
to enjoy the confections I made with fairy wings and
reams of pink and purple flowers which scare off evil

The delightful shine hurting their eyes, my colleagues
blink & look away while no spy enemies approach the
sacred sanctuary of my work station; ah, perfect life…
