A funny little poem for all the Mystery and Fun Lovers
I hear a noise, who’s there! I shout
And listen, intently, to the smallest sound
No answer, no reply?
Can you at least tell me why?
I start running through the house
This noise wasn’t caused by any mouse
Up the stairs and down the stairs
My heart is beating in despairs
I look and seek
In every room I peek
Who’s there, who’s here
I’m scared oh dear, oh dear
The basement door I find unlocked
I pause, I think I’m shocked
Should I go or should I stay
What will be crossing there my way?
The fear it grips me tight
My head it spins, not thinking right
The phone I fetch,
Dial 911, for the intruder to catch
I say hello I have a burglar here!
Stay in the line, we’re busy dear,
Oh no, don’t put that line on hold!
Be patient! I am now told.
Oh me, oh my, what shall I do?
All my beer is there, my precious brew!
In the basement, not hidden well
Any burglar will find it, I can tell
I still stand by that cellar door
On my ear the phone, the line seems to roar
Now music plays while I’m on hold
We’ll be right with you I am told
I can not wait for them to act
My nerves by now are wrecked
I need a plan, I need to fight
For my brew to keep is my right!
A shotgun do I have upstairs
So I put my motion in reverse
Retrieve the gun and shells
Watch out you scum, you’ll hear my bells!
I slam that phone back on the hook
Alone I will fight this crook
Slowly I pry open the door
So afraid, can almost breathe no more
I go down the cellar steps
One by one, don’t have a lot of peps
Gun held out in front of me
Give up, you thief, I’m warning thee
I find my brew, all safe and sound
No burglar here that I could pound
Just the neighbors cat
Grinning at me, big and fat
That was a nasty scare you beast
But you didn’t touch my brew at least
Go home, be gone, get out
I angrily shout and pout.
The cat is gone, the house is quiet
I grab a bottle and call my friend Wyatt
We drink the brew and have some fun
I’m calmer now, the scare is gone.

|Fear is a funny thing... once you enter into it it just kinda takes over... reminds me of the stew I got my whole family into, believing I had once heard the floorboards creekin when everyone was accounted for... EVERYONE was up in arms but, again, all we could find was an innocent-looking cat! But during the time that I had got EVERYONE believin my fear, I reckon my mother must have turned grey...!! Jaunty tale which I am pleased to hear resulted in a celebration... any excuse in my book! TY Kate xx|

|HAHAHA!...LOL!!!!! Birgit and Roger!!!!! This one is so funny!!!!! You've done a wonderful job in building up the suspense, and you've added the comedy part to the story. This one is so well-done and entertaining.
This one also reminds me of my own story in my "Stories" section, entitled, "PARANOIA" which I had written some years ago. You can read that story in here:
