The Unwanted Guest

Contributed by softerware on Monday, 13th November 2017 @ 10:54:00 PM in AEST
Topic: Holiday Poetry

Knock Knock at my door.
Who could it be?
The sherriff with outstanding warrants for me?

Maybe a student to sell magazines;
An activist planning to make me go green?

Weight Watchers trying to manage my weight?
A roofer whos here about 2 years too late.?

A package from Fed Ex? I could be wrong!
Triple A telling me I should belong?

Whatever youíre selling;
I donít need no more!
(Iíll wait til its dark to open the door).

On the porch is a card with a ribbon no less;
Saying "Youve won a prize; youre the best of the best!"

ďFirst we rang, then we knocked, and we saw you hide!
Such rude behavior has made us decide:

We cant leave your prize since we no longer list you".

Yours truly, Santa
...so sorry we missed you.

This was lovely Jaye-lol
It rings so true as well as being funny with a great flow. Weird it has the 20-30/'/s era appeal to me. In the day when people read you would be filthy rich. You were born many decades too late. But ain/'/t it the truth that when you hide it was actually going to be something good- darn. I loved this!

You are a storyteller. I always feel as if I/'/m watching these poems unfold before my eyes. A great gift.

Poetry is much like a great photo, a single "moment in time" capturing many feelings and emotions. Yet, they are very alive; creating stirrings within the readers who form visual "pictures" of the expressed emotions within the Poem. ©
