The Man Across the Street

A Poem

Don’t go on Google if you fear pedestrians

Or pedagogues

Or pedicures.

Lock your doors,

And don’t look for shadows.

You’re better off under the covers.

Don’t eat candy.

Travel in groups,

And avoid eye contact with passersby.

Gain height

And put on muscle.

Try to age as fast as you can.

Grow another pair of eyes,

Eyes for bush-scouting.

And keep mother within your reach.

For you never know

Who might be around.

It could be The Man Across the Street.
