The key clicks!


Image from: Morguefile

The key clicks
Entering stealthily 
Adjusting to the darkness
Eying the surroundings
With alert ears
Slowly but paced
Items are chosen 
Wrapped and moved.

The key clicks
Hurriedly entering
Failing to notice 
The emptiness 
Sudden screams 
On realisation
Police notified
And insurance to be dealt with!

The key clicks !!!

    Police and insurance are the most cumbersome part.

  4. That's a key to a world wrought with unfairness and unpleasantness. I never thought that the key would lead to such a beautiful world adorn with beautiful words. Thanks for showing me the way:)
