There is,

of course,

no such day,

as International Pet A Triffid Day;

it’s just something

I’ve planted into your mind,

to see if it will walk the triffid walk there.


So, when you do happen to come near

to any triffids today,

please take care,

and remember to say,


‘Triffids don’t exist,

they’re just from a book,

and, if wasn’t for those green flashes last night,

I’d take another look.’
