Everyone Needs A Security System - Poem by John W. McEwers

One: Assess the possible threats.

Kate, Smack Addicts, Bath Salters

Two: Address Weakness in your Perimeter

Get Buff, Get a doberman.

Three: Advanced Knowledge of Approaching Threat

Peer out the window at neighbors wife

Four: Act

Peer out the window at neighbors wife

and do something about it.

But I can sense the danger
it is too near

I took a class once at the YMCA
where they taught us to kick testicles
when we were confronted by bad men
in sweat pants

I trained with a nice man in the pool,
kicking hard against the water,
and he would stand, legs spread
saying this could save my life one day

Well thank you man in the pool,
because I never knew how to swim before that
and I just heard flash flood
warnings on the TV.

If you could be swept to my home,
we could train again.

Anymore I kick leaves,
dry, crunchy, desiccated.

They remind me of practicing my front kick.
But softer.

and now I think Kate is back.

Back in town.

Back thinking she is still a thing welcome.

Well I have a dog, and I have a security system

and ain't no one getting inside

but my true sparring partner
