Midnight. Poem by Tony Adah

Midnight.

Rating: 4.0


I wonder why
The neighbourhood
Dogs yowled at the middle
Of the thick night
I gropped into the children's room
And peeped across the spur
Rescued by two solar lamp stands.

Up across the next building
The affluent illuminated
Abodes shone in the night
A guard's torchlight
Irking the dogs more
And they howled at some dark
Shadows in the lights.

The dogs barked and barked
Howled and howled
Wooo wooo wooo
And then growled and growled
Their tails hidden
In their hind limbs
It was a horde of thieves
Prowling the night.

The night is roused by the howl of the dogs and the sinister exploits of thieves, beautifully presented!
