AnElephantCant quite understand this picture
With a horse and an aggressive wee fellow
Up on its back
He is under attack
By a madman who wields a deadly umbrella

Are they better than AnElephant’s little offering?
She watches nervously as he puts his rucksack behind the tree near the school gate.
He doesn’t look like a father waiting for his child.
She doesn’t recognise him, and by now she knows most of the other parents who arrive on a daily basis.
She is sure she has never seen him before.
His eyes are everywhere, as though looking for something – or someone?
She starts to dial 999 – emergency services – when he moves so fast it stuns her.
A huge gun appears in his hand, he moves towards her.
She flinches, turns away, as he fires, once, twice, four times.
As she realises she is unhurt, she sees the two men with automatic weapons fall face down from the back of the white van.
