An Alexandrian Murdered by the Police

It wouldn't have lasted long anyway -
years of experience make that clear.
But Fate did put an end to it a bit abruptly.
It was soon over, that wonderful life. ...

Then, sad, I went out on to the balcony,
went out to change my thoughts at least by seeing
something of this city I love,
a little movement in the streets, in the shops.
