Crime Closer to Home

The diner across the street
Was robbed yet one more time
A policeman came to my door asking
“Lady, did you see the crime?”

I had to reply
Much to my regret
“I saw nothing, Officer
“Tell me, what did the robber get?”

He would not reveal
What treasures there were taken
All he did was leave me
A bit scared and obviously shaken.

Where oh where
Did that robber go next?
I grabbed the Ouija Board
And conjured up a hex.

“Oh, leave me alone
“Oh robber so bad
“Just get on your way
“You rotten cad.”

May 1999
