A funny little poem for all the Mystery and Fun Lovers



The Mystery 

I hear a noise, whos 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 wasnt 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

Whos there, whos here

Im scared oh dear, oh dear

The basement door I find unlocked

I pause, I think Im 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, were busy dear,

Oh no, dont 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 Im on hold

Well 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, youll 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, dont have a lot of peps

Gun held out in front of me

Give up, you thief, Im 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 didnt 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

Im 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:
