At Parsons Green Station, London

Please, no more bad news or I'll scream!
Bomb attack in Parsons Green
A quiet suburb, Fulham way
Commuter lives in disarray ...

The Net, or Met, spreads very wide
A youth near Dover now inside
Raids upon a foster home
Conflicting news on mobile phone.

What? Why? and Where? are headline news
The fifth attack - a myriad clues
More police must be deployed
The stiff upper lip destroyed.

The bomb, home-made, was badly wrought
All its components counter-bought
Times are uncertain, that's my point:
The Parson's nose is out of joint!

Note: 29 people hurt ...
