I have a meeting on the phone.
I really need to be alone.
Four dogs are barking at the door.
Whatever are they barking for?
Perhaps the mail arrived at last.
Perhaps a man is walking past.
Perhaps a car is driving by.
Perhaps a leaf is blowing high.
Perhaps the UPS truck is here.
Perhaps someone opened a beer.
Perhaps a train went down the tracks.
Perhaps a boy wearing corduroy slacks.
It must be critical, that’s for sure.
Since all four are barking at the door.
