Shopper with just £20 stabbed in the street

Shopper with just £20 stabbed in the street

So ends a brief report in this morning’s Metro, p.7, describing the horrific ordeal of an 82 year old woman stabbed on her way home from Tesco, Shopper with just £20 stabbed in the street.

Perhaps they are right. Perhaps nothing was taken from her… nothing, that is, except her dignity, her pride, her freedom to walk the streets the streets without fear, time with her husband… and perhaps her life itself.

No, nothing was taken from her: just everything that matters.

The crowded trains
the need for space
the endless crush
of the human race
a race against time
a race against waste
a race erased on every face
by frowns and fears
and jokes and jeers
till thinly veiled
wrath
breaks through
a cough
a sneeze
a dread disease
a shout
release
a fist finds space
then silence falls
and words replace
the thin veneer
of the human race…
