Lady Luck gave me a chance
"A woman walking out alone,
I snatched her bag and mobile phone.
I left her bruised and distressed,
My first crime, I'd passed my test.
I took my spoils quickly home
Through Yellow Pages my eyes did roam.
I came across the "Lady Luck Bargain Store,
Anything bought we give you more."
When I arrived my heart missed a beat,
The lady I had mugged ,I was about to meet.
Behind the counter, her arm in plaster,
"Good you've found my bag,not such a disaster."
She gave me a hug and a tenner to spend.
I put it in the charity box,promising not to re-offend.
Lady luck was on my side,I was offered a job at the Bargain Store,
I've been there now five years and a criminal no more.
I gave up crime because there is no long term gain,
'Cos in the end you'll suffer pain.
Locked in a cell,deprived of leisure,
To pay for your crimes at Her Majesty's Pleasure.
Lady Luck gave me a chance,
Don't let crime lead you a dance.
All thieving thoughts I have now expelled.
Name and address to be withheld."
