Humorous Hymn: Dream

By Livia Turnbull, Humour Editor

 

Have you ever had a dream where

you’re trying to find a SkyTrain at a

crowded mall when somebody asks

if you would go to community centre for

two hours in exchange for twenty dollars

 

Once there, you find out that you’re playing Mrs. Lovett

in a stage production of Sweeney Todd, but you know none

of the lines and the audience is filled with unknown people.

 

You’re on stage, hoping these people aren’t fanatics.

Instead of the first line, “A customer!” you say instead

“Are you teaching me to sing, Mr. Todd?”

 

Awkward silence fills the room and you definitely know

That you’ve done something terribly wrong. Mea Culpa.
