Sumatran tigers have replaced all the lollipop people on the southern coast
it happened overnight – no one’s entirely sure how –

some people credit it to the government, some to the opposition,
others feel it’s more of a grass roots movement kind of thing
either way, everyone’s in agreement that it was a brilliant idea

The dog is grumbling underfoot, half hound, half cushion, and trending ever more towards the latter. Sun blares. The children press fat patty-cake hands into each others’ shoulders, straining to see, sweating plump droplets to spoil the petunias with too much salt.
