Fancy Digs

By David Brennan

COLERIDGE

I can’t believe you take naps in an outhouse. Doesn’t it stink like shit and piss?

BRENNAN DRESSED AS SHEEP

Who is this jerk? He’s rude.

*

WORDSWORTH

Don’t mind him. He’s dead.

*

BRENNAN DRESSED AS SHEEP

He won’t go to rot on us, will he? I hate the smell of rot.

*

WORDSWORTH

It’s possible. He’s not so well put together.

*

COLERIDGE

William, it’s raining. May I come in?

*

WORDSWORTH

Yes, come on.

*

BRENNAN DRESSED AS SHEEP

Baaaaaa.

*

COLERIDGE

It’s warm.

*

WORDSWORTH

The sheep are warm.

*

COLERIDGE

William?

*

WORDSWORTH

Yes, Samuel?

*

COLERIDGE

This is a crappy house.
