Finish off Friday #6: Footsteps in the Fog 20.01.17

Footsteps echoed eerily in the fog
Wind coming from the east and the trees swayed
Getting louder like the barking of dog
Gets nearer, is one going to be preyed?
Who’s that? I asked even though I’m afraid
Footsteps stopped suddenly, I’m still puzzled
Stop it now, Mathew, and don’t make me jade
Game is over and you’ve won, I dabbled
Not Mathew but Joe, who came in a jog
His footsteps faster coming from the fog*
