The Tap On The Shoulder

chair

The enemy tapped me on the shoulder

and asked if I wanted to play.

I boldly told him, no be gone!

Then went about my day.

 

The enemy came again

a little more subtle this time,

but I recognized that it was him

and quickly guarded my mind!

 

The next time he came

I was quite unaware

how we had been chatting,

but he had pulled up a chair!

 

The enemy came, tapped again

and the problem was suddenly so clear.

I had turned around and said “what?” to him,

thereby giving him my ear! ©
