Put Up With It—Or Leave

Put Up With It Or Leave

 

My neighbor’s house was broken into.

She reported it to the police.

The gangs killed her.

It was their retribution.

*

A short time later

someone broke into my house.

I know they people.

They’re in the gang.

They still live there.

In my neighborhood.

*

It would do no good

to file a report with the police.

The police would do nothing.

The gangs would kill me.

So my choice was to put up with it.

Again and again.

Or leave.

I chose to leave.
