You Picked This Day

Your day wasn't bad enough. You had to work late, on a job with no time and half for overtime. On your way home, waiting for the bus. Only to be held up by two members of Thugs-R-us. There's never a Cop around when you need one. They wave a gun in your face. Knowing you won’t make a fuss. You said look man! You must be practicing, because I’m broke as hell. They laughed and took Your cellphone, wallet and bus fare as well. But they weren’t through They took your over coat too. They were laughing As it began snowing. Then they got on your bus. And only because it’s Xmas season, they rob everybody on the bus. They left you standing there in the freezing cold. You saw the whole thing and they didn’t care. Because this didn’t really happen. Only because you picked this day, to called in sick.
