The Letterbox Transformation. By CpSingleton © 2016
I knew this witch once,

She didn’t look like your stereotypical 


No warts at all.

Her skin was as smoooooth as 

A baby’s bum and

Glistened like a kid had 

Poured glitter over her exquisite head.

Her legs were long and shapely and 

Went right up to her… Ummmm…


Where was I?

Oh, yes! 


What? Sorry. Didn’t mean to shout. 

I was just excited for a moment.

Yes, that’s right, I was talking 

About a witch.

She was lovely.

Apart from the time she turned me

Into a letterbox.

Yes, a letterbox.

And I tell you what, my lad…

Sorry: miss.

I tell you what my miss…


Yes, I know you’re not my miss. 

It’s a phrase, isn’t it?

We’ll agree to differ.


I tell you what my lad,

I have a new found perspective on 


Since she turned me into one.


Well, for one, it’s not a mouth-like 


At the front, where the letters go.

And it hurts when mail is forced in.

Not a good time.

Why, what?

Oh, I see! Well, she turned me into a

Post box as

A lesson for being forward with her.

And I must say that

It was a lesson well learned,

I can tell you!

Well, she changed me back


Of emails, didn’t she?!

I became obsolete, didn’t I.

Still, I learned my lesson.

Oh yes. I learned my lesson good!

Yes, I suppose some could say

First Class.

But that would be silly and

I don’t like silliness.

Good day to you, sir…miss.


About Chris42

I am a liar! A maker-uper of stories! If this was the 16 (c) I'd be burned as a witch. Fank goodness it is not, eh?! I have four children: two wonderful girls, a fantastic lad and Leeds United. I have no strict genre. I write children's poetry and stories, to edgy, stronger themes. Up until now I have stored them for my own and my family's viewing. Last year i thought bugger it and starred in several short films. One, Playground, which is on the BBC Film Network, used the monologue that I wrote for the audition. You should've seen the face of the receptionist, of the Manchester hotel, where the audition was being held, as I turned up dressed as the psychopath, Gordon. It got the desired effect! I then moved up to Cumbria and wrote and appeared in several live performances on stage. 2012. A local artist, Kayleigh Richardson, commissioned me to write a poem for her to paint a representation. I sent her, The Rise of the Robot Monkey Army. Kayleigh painted a fantastic piece that blew my mind! From that we are collaborating on the Jacob Bear series of stories. Oh and Two's Company is to published, along with seventeen other Sci Fi short stories as part of a collection. Not a bad start to the, so called, last year of the Earth. Now is the time to show the rest of you. I take my themes wherever i see them, whether in reality or dream-world. I hope you enjoy. If not tell me why. If so tell me why. Many thanks and be safe. So far I have published: Jacob Bear's first Christmas,https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007GK872A (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007GK872A (USA) Jacob Bear Goes to School https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007JD3OKY (UK) http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JD3OKY (USA Jacob's First Words https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007VZWPSC (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007VZWPSC (USA) Space Here https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007H96M90 (UK) &http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007H96M90#reader_B007H96M90 The Rise of the Sponge Cake Moon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B007WWZ16M (UK) & http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007WWZ16M (USA) © Madstoffa, 2012.
