Emma Mascarenhas


A Cautionary Tale

Unlucky Belinda
Sought new flames on Tinder,
Swiped right with a match
And was burnt to a cinder.

Emma Mascarenhas lives in Croydon, England, with her husband, children, and antisocial cats. As well as her work in Lighten Up Online and Litro Magazine, she was shortlisted for the Swift Satire Festival 2014 and won second prize in the first Light Verse Unlimited competition in 2015. She used to be an accountant, but generally tries to hush that up these days.
