Itch

Small town cop strolls

Down driveway,

Semi-automatic rifle in hand

Taking in scenery

Like a child takes in sunshine

Another walks a dog around

The back of the house

Business as usual

No one gives a first – let alone

Second glance

Dogs walk people,

Children swing on swings,

Laughter and serenity echo

Through streets

As cop strolls with his

Semi-automatic rifle

Finger itching to pull the trigger.
