What am I upto

Tom waits song ” what is he upto .”..  my recent silence  is even beginning to make myself uncomfortable …no amount of fox news  has managed to disuade even myself from finding out what i have been upto  ..so in a twisted  beckett style play i protested as i equally forced my way past myself …screaming and pleading ..i would not listen .. i wrenched the key from my own hand … drenched in equal amounts of tears and sweat ..i shouted above my own voice …its for my own  good !!   defeated and triumphant at the same time i burst into my own room  shamed and elated …..in a quiet voice i could hear myself say ….i can explain everything !!!  ….for weeks now electrical items had mysteriously come to the end of their life …our georgian home  was without toaster ..kettle ..hoover or hairdryer …extension leads ..and more ….as i entered the room  ..the whirring and bristling electrics sparked  revealing the full extent …of my own clandestine activity ..i pulled my self in front of the mirror …looked directly  at my own reflection and declared …we need to have a  talk  maurice!  The mirror mumbled back    ok
