By Jimmy Boom Semtex
Success is good if you get success
People will respect you if you’re successful
But what if a bank robber is successful?
Getting all that money from his raids
Dozens of robberies and hold ups
Netting him millions terrifying hundreds
Threatening aiming shooting robbing taking
All down to success a man and a pistol
The intent to succeed no matter what
With his drive to rob banks lifting the cash
But its fine the money is insured
Keep your eyes open he’ll hit a bank
Near you and take your savings
Which the bank will pay back
Coz they’re effing rich!
Let’s rob a bank…
(People think crime is easy and will pay. I often think about this. I knew criminals in the past including robbers and murderers. My dad was a copper. I knew both worlds. It inspired this poem.)
