Poetry Day: Blitzkrieg of Alarms

The cacophony of morning immortalised in poetry 😱

Legends of Windemere

(Written after an insanely noisy night.  How anyone else in the house slept through that is beyond me.)

Singing bird outside my window.

Joined by honking horns.

Sirens blaring two streets down.

Setting off three barking dogs.

A pair of wildcats being to fighting.

Knocking garbage cans about.

Early workers starting engines.

Late night shifters slam car doors.

A pack of people shouting high.

Shattering bottles as they pass.

A car alarm overtakes them all.

The baby cries until all noises stop.

Five minutes pass to sleep again.

Then the damn alarm goes off.
