Poem 212 - Home Alone!

It was dark night, and I was home alone
And the silence was broken by the ringing of my telephone
I answer the call, but no sound from the other end
And then came a sudden shout, a horrifying moment I did spend

I slammed the phone down, to my room I run
I can tell you, being home alone isn't any fun
I jumped into my bed, pulled the blanket over me
At that time the power went, so nothing I could see

I heard the doorbell, but I didn't want to go out
I didn't want to be a coward, but in my mind there was a doubt
So I took my cricket bat, and I stood gazing at the door
I opened it, and luckily it was my parents, back from the store

They were surprised to see me holding my bat
There were tears of joy in my eyes but easily I could explain all of that
I never found the answer to the prank call, if it was a prank
And if it was a prank, then the caller, I would love to spank
