Geez... big bummer, Kit! Big time!
but i'd say if you lived for 12 years without having to lock your doors and if this is your first confrontation with an attempted break-in, all in all, you should count your blessings. it's no fun to experience something like that, that's for sure! glad they didn't get in.
once my cd player was ripped out from my car
wires were pulled all over, but he didn't get too far
down to the next corner to buy himself some dope
sometimes in the cities, it is very hard to cope
once my friend's neighbor was walking her dog
out of the alley, right there in the fog,
out jumped a stranger with plans for some cash
knocked her out cold and then bought him some stash
the trouble with cities, is large populations
of people with pent up, confusing frustrations
it's good to be cautious and watch for your back
but cities have some things that rural towns lack
you are closer to work and the dining is fine
and there's many conveniences there by design
great art, old museums and live music shows
an abundance of cultural life, i suppose...
so chalk this one up, Kit, and count yourself blessed...
it could have been worse, but please don't get obsessed
with a fear which can stifle and keep you in jail
locked inside of a house with a life of e-mail
the people who break into houses and cars
should not ever force you to live behind bars!
geesh... i got carried away... LOL... thank you for being tolerant of my spewing forth of rhyme... i know you didn't say you were scared, you said you were frustrated and missing your former feeling of security where you used to live... the muse just took me to another level
again, sorry to hear about this...
