The Man Who Shouldn't Be There

A small-town mural tribute to the artist Rene Magritte.
He doesn't laugh.

He doesn't smile.

He hasn't been here

(nor there) in a while.

He doesn't talk.

He doesn't smoke.

He doesn't drink.

He's very grey

(not very pink).

He walks through walls

(doesn't use the door).

And sometimes when I'm not looking

He'll come through the floor.

He doesn't exist

Yet there he is,

Doing nothing

but being a whizz.

His silent voice

says nothing at all

But just listening to it

Is a bit of a ball.

He won't do this.

He won't do that.

He won't say boo to a goose

Yet he frightens the cat.
