The cost of life

Poem by Marc Aupiais

Mommy thought me old enough,
To walk 15 metres from the car,
To the bistro alone,
For that treat,

I objected but walked,
Maybe 10 or 14.

And there he was shaking in the sun,
Covered in a liquid one may call blood,

Hands behind his back,
Handcuffed, as the police did stuff to his shaking form.

He'd tried to raid the bistro,
The grown man.
Clearly lost it,
Desires quite full.

Lying in the parking lot,
By the pavement!

As the police increased the pool of his blood.

I walked past and bought,
My treat.

Soon the bistro,
Would be sold,
And close,
And the nearby butcher also left,
As did we.

Its sometimes hard to drive,
To the shops alone.

And when I see people,
Being assaulted by security or police,
I never stop or interfere.

Once that they had Christmas Sweaters a product that met the standard they got down to achieve, they knew it was time to discover a software that may assist them create a better product in a fraction of the time, with repeatable precision. After some research, they discovered that ShopBot CNC was meant for them. While this year’s event was not as large as the NAMM 2020 event, we heard many times that business is booming for producers of musical instruments and equipment. Companies who've been outsourcing their production work up to now have been turning to onsite rapid prototyping tools and inexpensive precision tools to get the job accomplished effectively and reliably. I saw tiny issues, like dowels for putting cabinets and cupboards collectively.
