A Near Hit

bathtub

 

Sneaky,

Sly,

Stealth.

His weapon concealed

Beneath the water.

Out of sight,

Imperceptible,

To those who love him most.

 

“Up, up,”

“Up, up.”

He looks for an ally

For his coming crime –

A partner

To help carry out his bidding.

“Up, up,”

“Up, up.”

 

Two hands extend.

Two more hands reach out.

From the water he arises

Like a liquid hyena –

Smirk upon his face,

Cackle from his hinged-open jaw.

 

Two feet touch down,

And hell breaks loose.

POP!

“Hahaha!”

Stomp, stomp, stomp!

Death to the carpet.

A near hit to my foot.

    1. Yes… Pretty gross. I tried to flower it up with poetry, but it’s a tough sell :). It was really funny when it happened though. He was cackling like a maniac and stomping around – thinking he had just done the funniest thing in the history of bathing.
