Home security

A knock besmote my door last night
— the first for seven years —
a clamorous cacophany that still echoes in my ears.

I loosed the dogs
hit the alarm
dropped the net
released the blade
pulled the trigger
pressed the button
lit the fuse
set the trap
swung the axe.

It’s important to nip these things in the bud,
or I’ll be inundated.
