Back room Came Suddenly

The back room 1)
Came suddenly.
It laughs at me
As I am looking
For the window
In the bricked
Up chamber.

1) A backroom is a room that is situated at the back of a building, especially a private room.
2) You can use backroom to refer to people in an organization who do important work but are not seen or known about by the public.
3) If you refer to a deal made by someone such as a politician as a backroom deal, you disapprove of it because it has been made in a secret, dishonest way.

About Yelling Rosa

I am retired. In my spare time I read, write, play the guitar and hike. I have published three verse books in Finnish and recorded my songs. You can listen to them on YouTube. I have translated some of my poems on Yelling Rosa's Weblog. I also like to watch movies. Olen kiinnostunut lukemisesta, kirjoittamisesta, kitaransoitosta ja luonnossa vaeltamisesta. Olen julkaissut kolme runokirjaa ja laulujani on äänitteillä. Voit lukea runojani Yelling Rosan kotisivuilta ja kuunnella laulujani YouTubessa. Olen elokuvafriikki.

  7. Well stated! Back rooms are where decisions affecting millions are made by a dozen or so.

    Bonjour ou bonsoir
    Je passe avec un cocktail d’amitié
    Pour que l’on puisse trinquer ensemble

    Avec un velouté de bonne santé
    Que l’on puisse le partager
    Ainsi qu’une poêlée de gentillesse
    Avec beaucoup de tendresse
    Pourquoi pas pour accompagnement
    Un plateau de douceur en chocolat

    Pour adoucir ta soirée ou ta journée

    Belle journée ou fin de journée

    Bisous Bernard
