Theme: Comedy

A Ruse

The young lady arranged herself on a satin pillow
Faking death such that no one would ever know

At the appointed time when the doorbell rang
No one answered it just as she had planned

After half an hour of ringing and banging
The neighbours were summoned for help

They too did their level best to awaken her
But she was supposed to be dead remember

Finally the person for whom the act was meant
Appeared on the scene and she sensed his scent

She needed to make sure that he'd feel guilty
And would be forced to come back eventually

How does a dead person make a strong impact?
She did not as her Dad uncovered the sad fact

He walked up and placed an tiny insect on the pillow
Lo and behold all hell broke loose, the plan fell hollow

She jumped out of the bed she was no longer dead
Shrieks of shock and laughter as she covered her head
