Weaponized

 
 
 

WEAPONIZED
(An Ode to Manhattan)

It has come time to mix and mingle
And socialize ...
Perhaps to shop, grab a coffee, visit friends ...


Lifehammer - Check
Pepper Spray - Check
Emergency first aid kit - Check
Multipurpose knife - Check
Smartphone - Check
Extra battery for smartphone - Check
Tactical flashlight - Check
Pocket radio with GPS - Check
Wad of cash in small bills - Check
Pocket card that says "I don't have any money" in fifteen languages - Check
Attorney's phone number - Check

Just another day in New York City ...
Priceless.
