Daylight Robbery

By 16th January 2012December 9th, 2019No Comments

She went out and locked the front door,
forgetting to check that the windows were closed.
They got in from round the back.
They ransacked the house, looking for cash.
When she came home she was shocked.
She didn’t want to worry her son.
She wouldn’t call him that time of night
And certainly wouldn’t trouble the Police;
there was little that they could do.
All that was taken was thirty pounds,
so she cleared up the mess and went up to bed.
The very next day her son found her dead.
