Encounter

I fell into a trap

One laid with care and cunning

One set by a master in the art of snares

More cunning than the oblivious prey

And practiced in deception.

I walked right in

Eyes wide shut and unaware

As blithely as any mouse

Who senses cheese but cannot see

The danger in that coiled spring.

Blinded and unsuspecting

And going about my usual day

The sun shone warm and brightly

Nothing to hint of impending doom

Steel jaws gaping open wide.

The trap was laid

The trap was set

The trap was sprung

My spouse approached and said

“Let’s talk”.
