Death By Streetcar



The old lady crushed to death by the Bathurst streetcar

had one cent left in her purse when they found her.

Which could mean only one of two things:

either she was very wary of purse-snatchers,

or else all her money was gone.


                                    If the latter,

she must have known her luck would very soon change

for better or for worse.  Which this day has decided.
