Forget poor Yorick, I knew him not
my concern is directed to another much more recent departure.
I left my hotel room this morning
a little dishevelled, slightly unkempt (the room that is, not I)
bed unmade towels hanging where towels are wont to hang
I knew that upon my return, courtesy of the “clean me” card i hung on the doorknob
that the room would be restored to its original state of order,
cleanliness and straight lines brought to the space I left
organic and unstructured.
What I also left behind me was a half used toilet roll
a roll with many sheets to offer the individual in need
of such papered assistance, scrunched or folded
it had plenty left to offer me and I’m sure it’s trailing sheet
could have easily been folder into a point for my convenience.
But no, this toilet roll and I were to have no further adventures
in its place a brand new roll, unsullied by previous use.
What became of this roll, was it given to staff to take home?
Was it packaged up and sent to persons in need to pint sized ablution assistance?
Was it sold off in a seconds store at half price?
Alas, I don’t know the answer, I wish I did
the mystery of the missing half roll.
If I’d taken a photo I might be able to mount a search and rescue mission
but I did not
I could of course ask the hotel, but that would destroy the mystery
I’d ask Dr Google, but I’m not quite sure how to frame the question
Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated
