A Life of Crime
by Aviram Gottfried (me!)



Money that I gained
In an underhanded manner
With which I bought a house (the money, not the manner).
A house of death, a house from hell,
A house of pain and awful smell.
That money which I must have stolen
bought me a new house.

A wife that I gained
In an underhanded manner
Had organized a sale.
A sale of shoes, a sale of shirts,
Of tambourines and purple skirts.
That wife which I must have stolen
Sold all my favorite stuff.

A ship which I gained
In an underhanded manner
On which I sailed the seas.
The seas of life, the seas of sand,
The seas of wrinkles on my hand.
That ship which I must have stolen
Wasn't water-tight.

A haircut which I gained
In an underhanded manner
was crooked as a lawyer.
A lawyers pen, a lawyers suit,
A lawyers hen (a pet?), a lawyers boot.
That haircut which I must have stolen
Was crooked and unsightly -
Which goes to show
That crime doesn't pay.



thank you

Far too close for comfort. Stop it at once!

He's been using an inside-a-head-a-scope on you.

The New Coat.

Welcome to The Inner Realm
the place for outerwear
Stand proud with-in your suit of clothes,
but please don't use the chairs.

They have a mind and hate behinds
up-ont their velvet seats
so stay well back,
unless you pack,
a substantial bag of sweets.

With weather as it is to-day,
a coat is what one needs
How about this Crombie, sir
with the dye that never bleeds.

Fits you like a glove, sir
or a coat, should not one say?
Put it on, tis free-of-charge
pay another way

The Inner Realm is special
No cash abounds in here.
We take our pay the gentlemans way ...
A nose? An eye? An ear?

Your credit is no problem, sir
so please remove your specs
the blade is meagre,
but I am eager,
now look-up ...
and do not flex.

PA (Unwin)
