A Proud Thief

A Proud Thief

A Poem by Deepika
"

A light-hearted piece on the burglar's justification towards his profession. Hope you enjoy :)

"



Don't averse or berate my profession,

In minutes I can have all your possession!

 

I'm no less than any of the detectives you adore,

I have not just the member count on your floor,

But also the enumeration of your house doors!

 

Don't mock at me for having no official promotions,

I have set my own records at several police stations!

 

I'm no less than any fighters who pledge their life,

They fight for many while I fight for myself!

 

True that I can't boast about my job to any,

Boasting about yours to me is not just funny!

 

Don't dare you call me ruthless now or ever,

Begged for a decent job and you could do no favor!

 

Don't scream at me saying I do no Hard work,

You sob when it's your night-shift gazing at the clock!

 

I don't look for any recall or for any reward,

Let me work behind the screens on my own accord!

I liked the theme and the playfulness with the liens as I read this work...gives us the aspects for which the thief is just as normal as the person who does legal work for a living in like terms...I did stumble in a few areas of this write...I will mark those thoughts below...and see if you agree...or not:

yours...

Don't averse or berate my profession,
In minutes I can have all your possession!

I'm no less than any of the detectives you adore,
I have not just the member count on your floor,
But also the enumeration of your house doors!

Don't mock at me for having no official promotions,
I have set my own records at several police stations!

I'm no less than any fighters who pledge their life,
They fight for many while I fight for myself!

Boasting about yours to me is not just funny!

Don't dare you call me ruthless now or ever,
Begged for a decent job and you could do no favor!

You sob when it's your night-shift gazing at the clock!

I can hear the voice quite present in the work...the momentary pauses with extra commas and the word order give the add feel of your write...of course --- this is just IMPO...do what makes you comfortable...just adding my two cents worth...good day...

The money's in cyber fraud now a days. Robbing a bank at gunpoint is just stupid.

Perhaps you are right, but it's not totally absurd, at least in developing/under developed regions. .. read more
I am under the dilemma. Do you know why? Because, I can't choose whether it is a satire or a display of the ideology of an impostor life a thief.

It is my personal experience, that whatever job a man does, he has fine logic, to prove that he is not wrong in any way. He will, in fact, compel you to think, that whether it is right or wrong?

Here it is no different.

A beautiful piece of write. You have portrayed the mind of thief, very effectively.

Great work!!!!!

No, I always didn't mean that. Well, Happy Holi.
Very humorous and comical! I love the rhyme scheme.It really goes well with the flow.this is a profession that is looked upon with disdain in our society and you make the audience think from the thief's point of view. You're piece makes quite the impact and is very persuasive in changing our outlook towards thievery! keep it up!
