Just came home from Waitrose*
to find an armed police raid in full swing next door.
Not what one expects.
And to think, only hours earlier
I had been sitting on the swing seat with a Magnum.
By which I mean one of these
lest there be any confusion in your minds.
I was reminded of the joke about the Peter Jones*
department store being where you should go in the event
of a nuclear attack, as nothing bad can ever happen there.
Surely I couldn't be expected to unpack Waitrose hummus
with plain clothes officers swarming about the place.
This must qualify me for inclusion here.
