LIGHTS OUT

LET ME BRING YOU UP TO DATE. GRIDS ARE DOWN THROUGHOUT THE STATES. A HUNDRED AND TEN WITH SWELTERING HEAT. WITH SHORTS ON MY BODY FLIP FLOPS ON MY FEET. THIS HAS GONE ON FOR THE LAST 48 HOURS. ALL DAY AND ALL NIGHT AND STILL HAVE NO POWER. YET GAMBLERS ARE GAMBLING BOOKIES BOOK BETS. PREDICTING THE TIME THE GRID WILL RESET. A THUGSTER TRIED THUGGING, BUT THEN HE GOT SHOT. WITH A HOLE IN HIS HEAD, HE WAS DEAD ON THE SPOT. LOOTERS ARE TARGETS FOR COPS ON THE STREETS. WHO TRY TO STOP RIOTS AND STILL KEEP THE PEACE. THE BEST PLACE TO BE IS INSIDE OF MY CAR. WITH A/C AND MUSIC AND ENOUGH GAS TO GO FAR.
