Invasion

pitter patter
clack-clicking
‘cross the floor
evil tricking

teeth gnawing
scratching incessant
can’t be still
another second

chasing silent
am I crazy?
did I just hear it?
my head is hazy

waiting game
tickety-tock
round and round and round
the clock

upon the ceiling
in the walls
fast and furious
down the halls

tiny monsters
sharp and hairy
invading, invading
my sanctuary

GET OUT, GET OUT
PLEASE, GO AWAY
YOU’RE ALL I HEAR
EVERY MINUTE OF THE DAY

I thought you’d vanished
welcome back…
aren’t you famished?
how ’bout a snack?
