To The Point

I knew I heard a knock
so I unlatched the lock
and almost dropped right there
for waiting on the stair
a gruesome figure stood
around his head a hood
that hid his features well
but anyone could tell
this creature's only goal
was harvesting a soul.

I swallowed down a yelp
then asked if I could help,
he pointed at my chest
(I had cardiac arrest)
then he said, "Are you Jim?"
and I said, "Nope, not him
try next door instead."
Before he left he said,
"I like to be succinct."
and then he kindly winked.

Sounds like a near lucky miss...Hopefully:)
Not the kind of caller one wants to see too often!!!

You would think he'd be more careful. That's not the kind of job to mess up. Good thing the postal workers in our town don't do this job.
