And then he starts rapping. Dear lord, you have to hear this.
Rock'n'roll, the American soul
to the American dream
Hard blast to your chest
Blood all over your breast
Why didn't you wear your bulletproof vest?
You lost your left testicle
And your right lung
Why did they have to shoot yer?
And take away your future
when you were so young?
Tupac Shakur: it's a heartbreaker
It's a ballbreaker
Your mother was a Black Panther
And your father was a political criminal1
But you had a voice as sweet as a Jewish cantor
Singing from the hymnal
On a high holy day...
I remember the words you sang which
changed the English language
Friday the 13th... you lost your dream...
The writer claims to speak for the "Movement for the Containment of Xmas".
Clive Barker, manager of the Oxfam shop in Otley Road, said the letter was posted through his letterbox on Monday evening.
He said: "It is very odd. Every morning I wonder if I am going to be able to open up or will the lock be glued up.
"We are not going to take our cards down as we are a charity and we raise money for all the Oxfam projects.
"The cards are important for our fundraising. Like the rest of the High Street there are Christmas cards on display as early tasters.
"Four shops have been targeted and I just hope that nothing comes of it. The police say they are treating it very seriously and have taken the letter for fingerprints."
The letter states: "This is a very polite but very serious reminder not to display Xmas cards until 1st Nov. We will put super glue into your locks if you do. Peace and goodwill."
It's our store, and therefore our prerogative to sell what we want whenever we see fit. We are not bothered in the slightest that your ignorant arse will not be crossing our threshold this year.
