|Photo shamelessly looted from thisisnottingham.co.uk|
and breaking into the Pound
Shop to steal
useless things with no real
The mob is making its feelings clear
and armed police in riot gear
are fighting back.
And no-one hears a small
voice in the darkness among it all
We arrived at work on Tuesday morning to find our front door smashed. Our office is on an easy escape route from the shopping centre in the photo. Compared with some cities, we had it easy. They fire-bombed a police station but there have been no serious injuries and no buildings needing to be demolished. But this unrest has touched me directly.
I work for a charity. We can't afford to be wasting money on repairing doors. We have a better use for the money.
Angry with society? I am now. I'm just saying........
