The Clattering of Blinds

They keep the sharp light out

It’s why they were installed

and send a message to all outside

you’re not available to call

But there are some nosey parkers

who use these things for fun

as you hear turn of the gears

letting in the peek of the sun

The signs of life are apparent,

from the waste of takeaway Chinese

and backdoors been moving a plenty

deliveries been taken with ease

So while you’re out on the Garden lawn

getting vitamin E from the sun

they’re peering out from the shutters

watching everyone on a run

And you know just as well, they’re in there

from the sound of the rattling of tin

there’s no point in making denials

when they say they were out – they were in!
