The Midnight Hour

The midnight hour is approaching: not a sound

in sight, even if it is the middle of the night – not

the time to be woken by a fright, not even by


With the footsteps creeping near, leaving me in

fear, but it is better than shedding a tear or

wanting to run for my life. But there is only

one way out – go and fetch the wife. If she

doesn’t scare then nothing will. So it is best

for me to go and hide until it is safe to come

out, or just stay there until there is no doubt

and knowing that the wife has gone out!
