Housed Stranger

Tick . . . tick… tick

The heart drums fast

Bubbling like a stream boiling.
The legs may appear composed

Terrible he is a green-snake in a green grassland
Trailblazer in misdeed; a one chance grabber,

The heart as dark as ash; yet a saint he appears.

Assertively, he searches everywhere
“Who stole it?” He questions everyone

Never seen, caught, or suspected by somebody;

Invisible has he appeared to everybody
Heartless, surely he is Mr. nobody
Beware ay you housed stranger
The sun never shines forever.
