Backing Away

Backing Away

A Ghost in Daylight?

A-browsing at the shopping mall

Revealed surprise in bathroom stall –

When standing backwards on the right

A gentleman pursued his plight.

Alas, within the ladies’ room,

The man persisted to presume.

And exiting, without a doubt,

I waited till he zipped back out.

The lesson? Look before you go

Re-read the signs – you never know.
