We were having dinner, when it came.
Cod in a parsley sauce, asparagus, chat potatoes.
I remember it got dark awfully early.
The television flickered, then went off.
We watched it for a while, chewing.
Mother mentioned how quiet it was.
Father said, " I was just thinking , ..."
When the lights went out.
The sky through the window glowed.
"What is it ?" asked Mother, looking up.
"A blackout, I expect," said Father, when the glass
Blew, splintered doors flew away from their hinges.
