Me The Master Thief
By Richard Maxfield
9-14-2000

Stealth in quicken steps
In the dark of night
Sneak up on the place
In shadows from the light

Camouflage my face
Cover my body heat
Trying to appear as
One more soul on the street

Did I bring all my tools
To Jimmie the lock at hand
Can I sneak through the alarm
To execute  my precious plane

If Iím caught
There will be no hope for me
Iíll be locked out with the others
No one will ever see

I know Iím close
My heart is beating fast
I can taste the treasure
Feel the pleasure at last

I know it canít be bought
I tried my best to earn
So I went to dark school
These tactics I have learned

If I can slip pasted the guard
Iíll be home free
Just the other side of this wall
I know it awaits me

Me the master thief
I really need the pleasure
A piece of what I want
My most cherished treasure

A place in your heart

Interesting metaphor, now I know what my lover went through to steal my heart.

Sorry but a "Master Theif" I don't think. First off, you had to go to school to learn what to do in the dark? It is outside the school you learn this. When they taught you to jimmie the lock, they didn't mean for you to go ask Jimmie to go with you. Heck Jimmie just left with your gal!! Next time leave Jimmie at home and for goodness sakes leave off that awful makeup you call camouflage.
