these things

took a shot

at being the guy

in a community centre

who gets things done

place was run by an ex cop

you know the kind

got his pension plays golf

finds it hard to let others do stuff

asked if I’d go help Bill

fix his PC unblock a glitch

I go over Bill offers a drink

leaves me alone

while I do the simples

run some diagnostics

brings in a hot coffee

we sip & talk just a bit

& as I get up to go

he reaches for his wallet

been there on the desk

all this time

offers a tip & I say no

all’s good part of the job

walking away thinking on ex cops

these things they do

laying little traps

see if the bait gets taken

these things they think

they must do

on those they don’t trust
