No Valuables Left

No valuables left in this caravan
I’m not trying to enforce a burglary ban
If you break in you will only grieve
For inside you will find nothing to thieve

No valuables left in this caravan
Not even a single Heinz baked bean can
All our stuff taken home with us when we shut down
So breaking in will just leave your face with a frown

No valuables left in this caravan
No televisions no cash for burglar Dan
So please do not break down my door
Just to find out this sign is right for sure

No valuables left in this caravan
Please don’t break in I’m a Cliff Richard fan
Do not break a window that would be sin
For there’s nothing to steal once you get in

No valuables left in this caravan
Not even a single frying pan
Look through the window see it is clean
Just leave it that way, leave me calm and serene

No valuables left in this caravan
I’ve even taken home my old Nan
So please be a charmer just pass on by
Don’t bother burgling, go on give it a try

No valuables left in this caravan
This message is one you should read not just scan

Our caravan is now shut down for the winter, and we to leave this sign no valuables left in this caravan, sad really that this should be, but burglars seem to have no depths they will not plummet too, sad I think, should our stuff not be safe without this.

    Enjoyed reading your creative work..Yes, people who thieve are indiscriminant in what they break into to see if there is anything valuable there..Your work is very creative and I might dig a little deeper for a meaning beyond just the worldly material and see if this work absolutely means something else..Sara

    It is a delight to see you back my friend, Owen, even with such a sad story to tell but it s well written and poetically expressed with a deeper meaning than a scanning may give the impression! Thank you for your visit!
