Huh?

.

You call me once.

You call me twice.

You yell something.

I can't quite hear.

I yell to you.

Wait for response.

Quiet. Still no answer.

I hear a murmer.

Then a cough.

I peek outside my door.

"What is that you say,

I can't quite hear you!"

An answer in reply.

But noise blocks it's way.

Still can't hear.

Say it again, please.

What is it you want?

No reply.

Fine, I'll go down.

Get up and jump down the stairs.

I turn a corner and stare.

A big suprise?

What is this stuff?

"Finally you came down here."

They say.

Wait, I stop to think,

Is this some kind of joke?

Because I don't get it.

What is going on.

And then iI see a banner.

Hung high up on the wall.

'Happy Birthday' it reads.

Presents stand tall on a stool.

Everyone is sitting around a table.

Smiles cover their faces.

"But it's not my birthday." I say.

"We know, it's not."

"We're just waiting for you to join the party."

"Whose birthday is it then?" I ask.

"Um, yours of course, who else?" they say.

"Huh?" I ask, " You don't make any sense!"
