Robbed by Chris Major

Robbed
 
There is a constant
procession of cars.
 
Mourners bring flowers
and teddy bears,
football shirts and photos
to personalise each plot.
Simple crosses show
the many young
taken prematurely,
when Heaven
smash 'n' grabbed,
left shattered glass
marking a party night,
a birthday,
A 50,
A 30,
M6…………………….
 
There is a constant
procession of cars.
