At the Gare Centrale

So it's «Shoot to kill!» time once again
Armed soldiers do their bit
A slight fire somewhere near the train
Then the Terrorist is hit.

Station cordoned off, delays
Blue lights converge on site
Fear stalks again in summer haze
Security is tight.

Aghast, we scroll down on the web
Is there no one we can trust?
Our joie de vivre at a low ebb
As we try to earn our crust...
