 Poetic Verses Of Love And Sorrow

"If You Can't Do The Time, Don't Do The Crime"

















SultryRose's Signatures




"If you can't do the time, don't do the crime"

He walked in
And stood in line
Waiting his turn
To do the crime


The slower they moved
More nervous he got
His chances were fifty fifty
Of getting shot


Outside in the car
With the motor running
His partner waiting
Why wasn't he coming


As the line moved slowly
He begin to wonder
If he could pull it off
With the stress he was under


He was twenty two
Everything was on the line
Was the road he chose
So he had to do the crime


Was his first big job
He had gotten away
Would have been better
Had they got him that day


It gave him the courage
To carry on
Little did he know
His life was gone


At twenty three
He was doing five to life
If he had only known
He would die by the knife


He hit the streets
At twenty nine
A hardened man
After doing his time


At age thirty two
Ten years for another crime
He never made it
Was killed doing his time



This message is true
Should you get into crime
Your life is over
Just a matter of time.


This happened decades ago
To a young guy, I used to know
