Why we chain our doors

My father used to

say that

back in his old

neighborhood

no one was ever

known to lock

their front door

at night.

***

We never thought twice about it. He’d say.

***

At least, that is,

until that

fateful morning,

when the whole

neighborhood

woke to find that,

as they had slept,

ALL

of their front doors

had run away.

    My Featured Blogger this week is George Raymond of trefology. George has the kind of absurd sense of humor I cut my proverbial teeth on, and you know how sharp proverbial teeth can be (think Monty Python). George sums up his approach to life in these lines:
    “If life is a joke,
    then the punchline can only be:
    to get to the other-side.”
