Risky business

The messaging boy rode his bike hands-free
past the house where the man slew his parents.
Oblivious, the boy was hungry for life.
The man was hungry for death.

It's a risky business having children.
They do dangerous things,
cycling helmet-less along busy roads
both hands and both eyes
on the fascinating phone. 
They do dangerous things
like knifing you

Those children.
They can come to harm.

I love the parallel you created in this one, Dave! The killer was a boy once too. Both sets of parents took a risk. Hopefully it turns out a little better for your bike boy's parents! By the way, thanks for your comment on "pre-socialmedia" :)

A bit of an ominous one this....Maybe it`s the reason we`re not having so many of them.

(hope the ankle`s healed okay, and you`re doing
all the trekking again)
