Is This Chair Taken

She stole a chair
And rushed away;
‘It’s taken now,’ 
I heard her say.

*over here, people often ask, 'Is this chair taken?', which means, 'Is this seat vacant?'

For Susan’s ‘Taken’ contest

    Thanks for the clarification, Jack... over 'there' the expression means just the opposite...!!! Anyway, I was trying to read between the (for me misunderstood) lines to come to the actual meaning! Well that's cleared up... Terry (glad I was able to provide a friend with a few laughs... )
