Mugger Alert (limerick)

The terror the screaming the roar

The night mugger came to her door

Soft tears couldn’t slack

This vicious attack

Poor mugger ‘cause black belt she wore

Tis the hand of fate that picks the house, and the hand of a witch that beats the louse. Great job, mh!

NICE!!! Wish the next innocent person here in the Tower Grove section of St. Louis City was a black belt. Only problem is the robber, even when he gets the purse or cash, still shoots. One recent victim was a young woman who handed her purse over to be shot in the face. Yesterday, a 60 year old woman was traumatized, although the mugger got nothing, he took a shot at her and missed, leaving her shaking on the ground outside her home. The viciousness of these random attacks leaves me outraged. Your limerick, albeit, an imaginary story, leaves me feeling a vicarious thrill in leveling the field for justice due.
