I’m up to good – DJ Matticus

I asked one of the most awesome bloggers I know to write something for me and voila! A beeeg, beeeeg thank you to Matt (click here to go to his awesome blog once you are done reading) for writing this lovely poem, totally made my day to read it and publish it here.
The clouds are gathering, the storm is ready to break,
I’m ready to do some entering and see what I can take,
That store looks nice with all its shiny doodads and whatsits
I think I’ll stroll on over and see what I can wrap up in my mits.
The storm erupts, and the rain pours down,
You’ll never see me in an orange striped gown,
I’m much too clever, much too quick in mind and feets,
I know my way through these mean, mean streets.
The wind lashes my face, stinging droplets of icy fire,
I fill my satchel and visualize my account going higher,
One more store and I’ll call it quits for the night,
Can’t be overly greedy, that wouldn’t be right.
Lightning flashes and I hear the sirens begin to wail,
I melt into the storm and let the water wash away my trail,
With a worthy haul for the evening, almost more than my back can bare,
Painfully bouncing weight can only mean: I’m up to no good, I solemnly swear.
Out of the wind and rain and cold, I dump my prizes across my table,
The glint and gleam of silver and gold spin and dance like some fable,
I bath in the seduction of all that glitters, I relish the food the bounty will provide,
Then I wrap it all up, secret it away, the evidence I hide.
I can hear the storm raging on outside, and happily crawl into bed where it is warm,
For too long the rumbling bellies of my wife and child has been the norm,
Tomorrow I will turn my plunder into groceries, and we will have a feast,
Sometimes being truly bad, of all my concerns it is the least.
