An Uninvited Stranger - A Poem


A bang at the door

The bolt on the floor

Jimmy on through

Oh, excuse you!


Left the door bowed

In our humble abode

A knife in my drawer

Unprepared no more


A creak on the stairs

Tread into our affairs

Peer through the gap

Your plan has a trap


A shout to alarm

Please do us no harm

You flee to your mate

With our home in a state


Violation and anger

At the uninvited stranger

Alas, the repairs will begin

To forge a castle within


The cars fly by

A loud plane in the sky

Nightmares for days

Waking up in a daze


A bang and a thud

Is that our old bud?

It's not, on further review

We never want to see you


Aloof and disdained

The invader remains

You make my heart race

What a family disgrace
