Away from home on business

and at the end of day,

I checked into a small hotel

somewhere along the way.


While lying there in bed

in the middle of the night,

I heard a crazy woman

screaming out with all her might.


“Open up this door”!

She yelled repeatedly.

“Shut up’, I said, from the bed.

‘Shut up and let me be’!


But after twenty minutes

of her loud relentless shout,

I could take no more, and

let the crazy woman out.
