They needed twin flatbeds because there were two sisters.
Each scaling just under a metric tonne and very religious.
Biblical proportions that needed to be cut out of their house.
And the neighbours gathered in the street.
Slapping their children for snickering, then making jokes
And the sisters demanded holy water be sprinkled on them
before they would agree to go anywhere
so the fire department was brought in with their hoses.
Each sister assured that it was holy water
and not drinking water
coming out of the hydrant.
Then the flatbeds drove away
and everyone shuffled
To cold mac n’ cheese
and nothing on
And an unhappiness so suffocating
that plants would die in its
