The police are very good

While parking his car
Outside the dry cleaners,
A man kills several pedestrians.

While he is inside the dry cleaners,
His car continues to kill pedestrians,
But in a less organised way.

The police are very good about it.
They wait

Until he has paid
His dry cleaning bill,
Before shooting him dead.

It is a quiet village, normally.
But in a mature democracy,
There have to be checks and balances.
