Order cannot laugh



They sat in neat lines

heads turned towards the left

sitting as they were put

All

except

one

that wriggled its bottom

twiddled its thumbs 

rocked on its bum

and created a disarray

forcing the tidy ones

to rearrange themselves

around the mess

in a bid to hide

the chaos

and the sore thumb

laughed secretly

then out loud

and was still laughing

when they threw it out

and formed a new order.
