You’d think that Bend’s a quiet place
on a summer Sunday night.
You could run down to the Safeway store
and then pack up for the night.
You’d think it would be simple
just to choose a thing or two.
Then hustle through the check-out line,
and, Presto! You are through.
But, nothing’s simple any more.
No place is free from strife.
Your quick trip down to Safeway
is where the shooter ends your life.
