Home, Land Security

Wife and Daughter argue loudly
Over what to wear with what.
We continue sleeping soundly.
This great noise disturbs us not.

Whispered words by a stranger
Anywhere about the home,
Send a signal, mayhap of danger.
Awakened now as by a shot.

William's Whimsical Words:

Of course, there is no completely secure place in this universe.
