My poem about violent crime

FeaturedImage_Crime_1.jpg

Violent crime brings nothing but pain

it makes people frightened to walk down their lane

worrying that something terrible might happen

or the sight of someone kidnappin'

The pierce of a knife or a shoot of a gun

some people might think that this sounds fun

really it's just a nightmare for most

but some people really like to boast

Some people are hiding away feeling scared

because of all the terrible affairs

all this crime doesn't make anything better

it just makes people start to fretter

Dripping blood and other gore

who would want to see it anymore

we could put a stop to all this threat

but if no one listens nothing will change YET...

    AMAZING POEM!

    I love the way you..
    1. said your own opinions
    2. Included the way people feel
    3. showed the way of someone else's perspective/viewpoint

    Did You Know..
    In the year ending March 2018, there were around 40,100 (selected) offences involving a knife or sharp instrument in England and Wales. This is the highest number in the eight-year series (from year ending March 2011) the earliest point for which comparable data are available. This is directly related with improvements in recording practices.
    In 2017/18 there were 268 homicides currently recorded using a sharp instrument, including knives and broken bottles, accounting for 33% of all homicides – an increase from the 216 recorded in 2016/17.
    London recorded the highest rate of 168 offences involving a knife per 100,000 population in 2017/18, an increase of 26 offences per 100,000 population from 2016/17. Surrey had the lowest rate of 5 offences per 100,000 individuals (up by 1 from 2016/17).
