The Watchers

                                                           

                                                    The Watchers
The first one comes and nothing. Everything is okay it seems with the world. Then something happens.
We know what has caught the attention of the first watcher.
The tail switches and this seems to be a signal for the other watchers to join.
There is a flutter here and another flutter there. It becomes an intense moment. Anything could happen it seems.
They keep close eye. One might dare to come close.
They take their watcher job quite seriously, you never know when action might strike.
But alas it is nothing but a tease on the other side and soon the watchers who don't want to be known that they were had lay quite slowly shutting their eyes. We're pretending is what they seem to be saying.
Their day will come the watchers say.
