Sleek as a cat
no one noticed him
coming in at the night

His lithe movement
made him undetected
to the unsuspecting occupant

What he did not notice
was the guard dog
at the corner of the house

Black as night
except for his eyes
which opened at the right moment

He growled angrily
at the intruder of the night
who freezed nervously

One wrong gesture
the guard dog
jumped over the intruder

In a bitterly ironic twist
one of the occupant
is a police!

I have been lacking inspiration ever since the daily prompt of WordPress was taken away. Those really helped me. So when I stumbled upon the Your daily word prompt hosted by Sheryl, I was struck with a sudden inspiration. Thank you, Sheryl!
