Power Of A Yawn

A yawn went through the shop that day, 
loudly and proudly, and I could not get away.
I watched it coming, flowing mouth to mouth,
first it went east, and then it turned south.
I tried to run, but it caught me as I turned a corner.
A little girl yawned big before I could warn her.
It is weird how powerful a yawn can be.
I believe it got all of us and there were at least twenty-three.
I tried to escape before it entered its second round,
but I did not get far as this is a very small town.

News travels fast in small towns, and so do yawns, apparently. Such an entertaining little tale! :)

I run when I see one coming for me, but usually do not escape.

Nice write Caren. It's strange how one yawns follows another yawn. Your words brought a smile to my face. I enjoyed your words, my friend....Peter

I know. Just thinking of the word yawn sometimes is enough. I kind of wanted to show how fast things go from one to another in a small town also.

Don't worry; I work with over 500 people a day. I run when I see it coming.
