Dispersed Quantity.(here)

the 11 of 12 given words:
broken shock chain  runners shoe slippery time grass lock screen
shard (piece of broken ceramic, metal or glass, having sharp edges)

Broken shards strewn in the open
In shock at the chain of events
Why must it be allowed to happen
'Hazardous waste' inviting torments

Road runners running in unsafe environs
Ordinary shoes offered scant protection
Slippery surfaces compounded the situation
Awareness of danger dastardly nonchalant

Time when running on grass was easy
Now such privileges were just rarities
Locked in development a modern day tragedy
Available space screened by the authorities
