The Invasion, a poem

Love this smart, funny poem by Robbie Cheadle- a must read!

Robbie's inspiration

Diana from Myths of the Mirror blog has a writing challenge underway. You can find it here:

Poets and writers are challenged to write a poem or story about their TBR. I have used poetic license and written a poem about how my TBR came into existence.

The Invasion by Robbie Cheadle

A loud aggressive ring

brought me fast to the door

I opened it innocently

not knowing the score


A long line of books

stood like soldiers of yore

each flashing it’s title

like a banner of war


“We’re looking for sanctuary”

declared Orwell, leader of all

“You’re a lover of books

so we’re paying you a call.”


“But I’ve simply no room”

I replied with a gasp

“We’ll make a plan, dear”

And they quickly marched past.


Up the corridor they tramped

Into my library, so full

“Wake up and make room”
