(IN THE PAST FEW DAYS)
On Thursday I was going shopping,
After feeding Tennessee.
I let him out on my way,
Leaving a "Flabbergasted" me.
The street was filled with police,
The street closed I declare.
I wondered what was happening.
A sense of mystery filled the air.
A policeman approached me,
Asked "Do you reside here?"
Feeling very apprehensive.
In my stomach I felt fear.
Apparently there had been a stabbing
In a house opposite me.
Injuries very serious,
I just wanted to flee.
I was given some advice,
From the said policeman.
"At your age don't go out alone"
As he lifted for me the street ban.
It was on the local TV news.
There was also another incident closeby.
Needless to say I've remained indoors.
Missing the wonderful sunny blue sky.
I hope the weekend will be better.
For you likewise myself.
I hope to go for a much needed walk.
Not left on the proverbial shelf.
