Poem: You Know I Robbed A Bank? By Shawn Kilroy
You know I robbed a bank?
I got away with it
Now I'm set for life
I have all the cash
I could ever need
And thinks are workin out well
Nobody saw my face
I didnt have to leave
town or anything.
POEM: STEAL EVERY BICYCLE IN THE WORLD BY SHAWN KILROY
Steal every bicycle in the world
Ride em straight into the sea
Till each one is rusted
A spider web husk
Even sharks will have heard of you
