Written by Dabelle’s human friend, Debbie: July 2018
Can you keep a secret? I have found out something about Dabelle’s husband Larry.
Which puts me in a difficult situation. Do I tell her what I’ve found out, or do I keep quiet and let her live on happy but ignorant of his double life?
It seems that Larry has more of a history than she knows! These poems about Larry by True North Bricks will certainly provide her with some interesting reading! She might even be a little concerned to discover that he is married, as I found out when I read the Finale poem. This could be problematic, she married Larry herself last year!
Is this a parallel universe, is Larry leading a double-life or does he have a doppelganger?
Dabelle and Larry have often chatted about his dreams and hopes for the future. I wonder how many of them she will find in these poems about his life?
Here’s the first in a series of eight poems.
The Tale of Larry (Part I)
(An original LEGO inspired poem from True North Bricks)
Moved out of his childhood home,
Went to live out on his own.
Full of hope and feeling free,
Working hard for a degree.
Books and food did not come cheap,
Neither did a place to sleep.
So that he could cover rent,
Off to find a job he went.
Stopping off at a café,
He dropped off his resume.
Soon enough they called him in,
And part-time he did begin.
A job without much allure,
Just a stepping stone for sure.
Meant to be temporary,
So began the tale of Larry.
I’m sure there will be more about this – stay tuned!
