Get Off My Roof!

I’m sitting here doing my homework when I hear a bang from above,
What could it be? It was loud, not just a dove,
So I open up my window and stick my head out,
But all that I see is the waterspout.

I go outside and go to look up,
And almost get hit with a falling cup!
A man looks down and “Sorry!” he yells,
Then the air fills up with odd cooking smells.
He yells down, “I have steak if you want some.”
So I climb up, trying not to fall on my bum.

I get up to my roof,
The man appears in a poof,
His blanket on a hook drying, its damp,
It seems that he has set up camp!

So I ask, “Why sir, are you up here?”
He replies, “Well it is quite comfy my dear!”
“Don’t mean to be rude, but this is not your house?”
“I travel around, I am like a small mouse.”
“So you are living up here, over my head?”
“Look my friend, I even brought my own bed!”
“I’m sorry, you can’t stay, please go away.”
“Fine, I’ll leave, but great view of the bay!”
