I Foiled A Robber's Attempt - Poem by MOHAMMAD SKATI

I WAS ALL BY MYSELF BECAUSE SAM AND HIS EMPLOYEES WENT HOME. IT WAS AFTER MIDNIGHT A ROBBER CAME CLOSER AND BRANDED HIS REVOLVER AND POINTED IT AT ME. AT THAT MOMENT I WAS ON THE PHONE TALKING WITH A FRIEND OF MINE. I HELD THE RECEIVER TIGHTLY AND I GOT SCARED. I THOUGHT SOMEONE WANTED JUST TO PLAY WITH ME. IT WAS NOT A JOKE OR A HOAX BECAUSE THE ROBBER'S MASK AND HIS REVOLVER INDICATED THAT SOMEONE WAS SERIOUS IN HIS ACT. SUDDENLY HE YELLED AT ME AND SAID IN A LOW VOICE ': OPEN THE DRAWER AND EMPTY ALL THE MONEY.' I COMPLIED AND GAVE HIM THE $250 IN THE DRAWER. AFTER HE TOOK THE MONEY HE STARED AT ME AND SAID: 'DOWN ON THE FLOOR. DO NOT CALL THE POLICE.' I DID WHAT HE ORDERED ME AND HE LEFT IN A HURRY. ANOTHER ACCOMPLICE WAS WAITING FOR HIM OUTSIDE. WHEN THE ROBBER HELD ME UP I PRESSED THE EMERGENCY BUTTON BY THAT MOMENT THE POLICE PATROL CAR CAME FLASHING AND CAUGHT THE ROBBERS. THE POLICE HANDCUFFED THEM AND PUT THEM IN THE CAR. IT WAS ALMOST TWO O'CLOCK IN THE MORNING. I CALLED SAM, THE OWNER, AND TOLD HIM I FOILED A ROBBER'S ATTEMPT TO ROB THE STORE. SAM WAS A LITTLE BIT SLEEPY AND SAID AS HIS HABIT 'GOOD! GOOD! 'AND HANGED UP THE PHONE. I WENT BACK TO MY WORK.
