“Footfalls echo in the memory

Down the passage which we did not take

Towards the door we never opened

Into the rose-garden.”

I wrote a short short fiction on 30 April at link immediately above. Objectively, I feel this has become a fable or metaphor for events in the UK in the last few days.

One or two people have asked me how I stumbled on the above connection. Well, I was an avid watcher of ‘Coronation Street’ from when it started in 1960 until around 2004. 🙂
