Neighbourhood Watch (Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge)

Inspired by and written for Weekly Prompts Wednesday Challenge – thank you GC and Sue

Form: Quatern Sonnet

The curtains twitch across the street
Blue lights and sirens rushing past
Ambulance called for number eight
Daft old Fred has taken a fall
Beneath a lamp Jess and Mike kiss
The curtains twitch across the street
Old Miss Lane is watching again
And Mike lifts a middle finger
I walk past ignoring gossip
Old Ma Lane is telling it all
The curtains twitch across the street
Nothing happens she doesn’t know
But a black car came by today
The curtains shut across the street
