A Night Runner And A Thief - Poem by Simon Odhiambo

A thief and a night-runner
At night in a foreign home
This caused a total fuss
As they ran from each others wrath

Thief came to steal a piece
Runners mission to do a jig
They hide from percieved owner
Both know someone's hiding

Thief thought runner owned the place
While Runner knew that as thiefs home
Their run left both in awe
In silence they're forced to laugh

Overdressed in a birthday suit
Disguised in a dark attire
They are trapped in this mans home
And the sun is waking up

A thief and a night runner
Both known to be fast and sly
Stuck in each others charm
The stare is overdue
The first to blink is who?
