 A  person shot dead,this how it unfolds
rioting and looting,electrcticals clothes and gold
Tottenham bore the first brunt,that came undone
and spread throughout the boroughs of London.

As i sit viewing the tabloids that brings
aireal shots fires destroying buildings
mindless youths as it spreads north
Leeds,Bristol,Birmingham to Liverpool and forth

People go homeless,shopkeepers go broke
no school for children,an absolute joke
we have soldiers in countries fighting wars
they are the  unsung heroes fighting a cause

Ashamed to be English? to an extent
i have never seen anything like this event
what will go next Buckingham Palace?
one word from me being absolute " disgrace".

    Was mainly an excuse to rob shops,and the mindless to destroy buildings. All calm now tho .. Thousands have been caught by cctv and up in court some recieving jail sentences .. blessing Paul

    Oh Paul, I see the awful things going on in England, it is so sad and your description of it makes me weep. The world today is one I hardly recognize from my childhood. A sad verse that tells it the way it is.
