Just had my Chinese, now I’m going to bed,
Didn’t think id wake up with a gun to my head.
Heard shouts at the door “open up it’s the police “
Then they kicked down the door it wasn’t the police.
Was told to stay put turn my head to the wall
Not knowing he had two mates in the hall.
I had my mate there, was asleep on the couch
When his mates went in there I heard her cry out .
Was told to keep quiet while they ransacked my flat
Looking for money bank cards and that.
When they ripped off my jewellery I hoped that was that
But my mate had a bank card they soon found that .
While one went off to cash it the other two stayed back
Shouting threats and insults giving it all that.
Just wanted them to leave what I couldn’t fathom out
With of all this commotion was my neighbour not about ?
A while later it went quiet alarm clock then bleeped out
Didn’t hear any movement was then my mate called out.
She asked if I was okay so I just murmured “yes”
“Are they in there with you” said “ think they gone I guess “.
It was then that we realised that we were alone
My flat I wanted out of was no longer a HOME !!
