Ezekial Koop

Ezekial Koop is the mean old cuss who lives at the end of the lane.

He’s seven feet tall and he sharpens his teeth. At least, that’s what the kids are sayin’.

They say he’s got eyes in the back of his head and one on the top for good measure.

And waits for his chance to grab one of us, to fry us up at his leisure.

He’s lived down there for 62 years, three months, two days and a minute.

And he’s kept all the balls that rolled into his yard. Some are mine. I’m not goin’ in it.

He’s got footballs and softballs, tennis and bocce.

He’s got lawn darts and Frisbees and our old black Hibachi.

He’s kept every one over all of the years

and he keeps gettin’ more because of our fears.

Dad says I’m foolish, to go knock on his door.

He says he owns Koop’s used Sporting Goods store.
