the failed notice

The guard dog
She fails to notice
The would be prowlers
Walking on the blocks

She sits there
Reading her newspaper
Eyes watching the going-on
She never notices the prowler

She knows about neighbours
Sometimes sharing with others
The conversation piece she spins
About her watches and gossips

Maybe now she will be alert
About the prowler snooping in the blocks
Of the story and drama last week
She doesn't want to miss it
