Stranger Danger? (Poem)

I’ve been told to beware of wild dogs
And crocodiles looking like logs,
To keep well behind fences at zoos,
Not to drive after drinking booze.
Dangerous weapons, I’ve seen quite few,
Machinery and chemicals too;
But it’s the first warning I’ve seen of this menace:
Keep Out
Dangerous Terrace

Tony Crehan 2011

I wonder if there is a threat of an international terracist plot?

    You’re getting too good at this poetry, making something so odd in the real world into a witty prose. Excellent stuff.

  • Sometimes the inspiration strikes..other times the mind is a blank. Thanks for your comment Sue.
