& then one day

I decided it was time to stop

being a thief

before we get carried away

I was never a raffles

a second story cat all in black

safecracker vault robber

barefaced shoplifter of loot

I was but a tedious tea leaf

typical armed forces grunt

if it isn’t nailed down

got a name on it

it’s yours

& I can’t now name

one big thing or valuable

thing I had away

found on my way home

just a deadly dull pilferer

until the day I decided

this no longer fitted who I was

that I had cheapened myself

for too long

& now?

this feels so long ago

I cannot remember what the fuss was

that I had to have a life decision

to make the change
