People pounding on my door

Politicians, realtors

“Sell your home” and “Vote for Me”

I won’t do either, don’t you see?


If I’m at home, throughout the day

It means I’m working, can’t come play

I’m under deadline, must concentrate

To talk to you will make me late


It causes stress,

But I digress…


When you knock, and my dogs bark

The cats all run, my mind grows dark

I have to stop, see what you want

It interrupts my writing jaunt


It’s dangerous in this age and day

To open doors – becoming prey

Even with my giant dogs

Even with my scary “Cog”


People pounding on my door

Stop pounding, disperse – come round no more

I ask you all to just desist

Or next time you will see me pissed!

A light-hearted,humourous poem with a message about unwanted visitors calling.Very appropriate as many can relate to unwanted callers pounding on doors at inconvenient times. How about a 'Do not disturb' sign on door or note saying 'Dangerous dogs inside'?

YES! YOU GO GIRL! Realtors, politicians, Jehovah's Witnesses, the lady down the street collecting for the goodwill, etc, etc, etc.

People pounding on my door,
go away for heaven's sake,
or on your behind you will
feel my rake.

And what about all those people calling you trying to sell you something you abosutely don't need?

Thank you for sharing, Stacy.

May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little sister Barbie.

Well said, Stacy.

The smartest thing i ever did was to have and electronic lock which needs a code to open the front door, no intercom, no chimes, not knockers, just a wonderful silence.
Now, when one of those telemarkers phone I said politely if he/she can hold just a moment and connect my phone to a 3 gigabites of horrible Muzak which will get anybody a headache. They black listed me and it has been a long time since one of those.

take care,

I never answer the door anymore - I just let my four growling dogs sit in front of it, and most of these irritating people quickly leave!

Not only you, but also your Kitty look like you mean business. Very funny read, great sense of humor. Thank's for a good laugh.
