Unwanted Guests - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

A mansion is built.
And unwanted guests,
Are reported to reside inside.

And there are those who claim,
This was not known.
Even though the unwanted guests,
Entertained, prepared the meals...
As well as took suggestions as to what to serve,
For choices of dessert.

And...
Tucked them all in bed at night!
To then leave,
On their own...
To wander freely around the mansion!
And yet,
It has been declared...
The guests who wandered freely around the mansion,
Were unwanted.

AND...
No one will admit,
They knew a mansion existed.
Nor have a clue who built it,
Or 'how' it got there.

I live on a fixed income.
And my every move is watched.
Even my approach to await a coming bus,
At a public bustop...
Is monitored as suspicious.
