(a valentine of sorts)

Robbers lives are filled with naught

living on what others bought

sneaking in your house at night

and taking everything in sight.


Bankers make their wealth in loans

of which you pay them back with moans

they keep their money stale and dry

and late at night they often cry


Bandits from the bankers steal

the bullets in their guns are real

but bandits usually leave a trail

and most of them wind up in jail


Kings have power over all

they keep their strength with Geritol

taxing rich and poor alike

and having gala balls at night


Robbers, bankers, bandits, kings

all these men hold earthly things

but I possess much more than this

each evening when your lips I kiss





My Valentine
