The threat of interruptions

March 12, 2019

I’m so sorry to interrupt this live broadcast,

However, an important announcement you must learn.

You see the threat of interruptions just intensified,

to the point of no return.


The group calls itself ‘I remember when’,

they aim, to abruptly end story-telling today.

Its leader, Interruptus just escaped,

so it’s best you expect him on his way.


He arrives at any party,

unbeknown to all the guests,

First he interjects in the middle of your sentence,

then each time he escapes without arrest.


The victims are left dumbfounded,

for their punchline went unheard.

No support from a surprised audience,

no whisper, nor comforting word.


More than magic is our new advice,

to stop Interruptus this New Year’s eve.

Only manners with the words ‘Do you mind’

may make this problem leave.


So be sure to be sure, just as morals go,

try to keep all stories short and sweet,

then you will find this Interruptus a myth,

who you will never need to meet.
