CURFEW 38

DAY 38 – Sept 9 are junkies shooting up anymore now everyone is shut indoors at night and dealers can’t deliver after hours has the smack trade copped a hot shot gone to pot no planes out or in tough titty for heroin are agg burg stats diminishing gang activity doesn’t seem to be the flavour of the month on prime TV how’s the blinking criminal world surviving in the big go-slow how’s the sale of weapons running how’s embezzling challenging when there’s no income to drain the moolah from

honestly this COVID thing is wreaking havoc in the badlands jemmies junked for jigsaw puzzles shotties shelved for sourdough lessons the baddest thing a crim can do right now is cop a fine for not wearing what they used to wear to commit major crime.
