Robbed

He jumped the counter

holding a knife,

grabbed the teller,

threatened her life,

all for money

and a bit of revenge,

angry at life,

and what it gave him,

the whole event,

over in a flash,

the after effects

much longer than that,

he didn’t get away,

within minutes he was caught,

punished for three months

while the teller is still fraught,

with the horror, the pain,

a completely senseless act,

he threatened her life,

does anyone care about that?
