Welcome To Quiet Town. By CpSingleton © 2014
Nelson town is quiet tonight.
Is it the calm before the storm?
No screaming, shouting, alarms
Bells ringing. Definitely not the norm.
Not that I’m complaining!
It’s nice to let the curtains go.
No jumping up to listen
To the screeching outside show.
I’ll have to put the box on,
Maybe watch a DVD.
The sound of silence outside
Is starting get to me.
Where are all the street thugs?
Are the police cars broken down?
What the hell has happened
To this funny little town?!
Maybe it’s the end of the world!
Or aliens lizards have arrived!
Maybe I’m the only human
On this street to have survived?!
Maybe I should pop outside and
Scream a few dark thoughts!
Be the one who reinvigorates
This street that’s out of sorts.
