First Year Interrupted

Sometimes in the epics,
demons fall on heroes
as they pass through forests–

like the thugs who grabbed you,
late night, from a bus stop–
they took you to the station,

gave you to the police,
who tried to extract money
from you and your family.

It is an age-old racket– 
you had stolen nothing,
they had no cause to beat you.
