August Angst?

In August – silence all around
My phone sits there without a sound
I sent out emails through the day
Has every last one gone astray?

Finding parking at Carrefour
Was easy right outside the door!
No queues: few cashiers at tills
Maybe later this place fills?

Many local shops are shut
Fruit is cheap – there is a glut
Special offers, prices slashed
To lure in punters with spare cash.

But those who do not go away
To a sunny spot on holiday
Cannot afford a brand new car
New carpet or an in-built spa!

I sit here staring at the rain
Splashing down the window pane
And wonder where I'd rather be?
But Brussels seems to grow on me!
