A Nice Little Place

A Nice Little Place

A Chapter by Dave Brown



With Covid 19 keeping

Feet off the street

There was little to do

For his crime fighting fleet

Forcing Superman

To sent Superboy a tweet

Telling him to turn in his cape

And start using his feet


With a lack of crime

Day after day

The man of steel

Couldn’t meet his staff’s pay

Causing an unpaid Superboy

Sitting unemployed at the Bar

To decide to put robbery

Into his 2dojob jar


Musing that a Liquor Store

Would be first on his list

Because robbing Banks wasn’t easy

When you’re thoroughly pissed

One drink after one other

Twisted his wrist

Until his once keen mind

Was mired in a mist


But being hammered and tight

Didn’t help his case

Now with no kryptonite

In his data base

And although his lack of fleet feet

Immediately ended the chase

The result of this affair

Hasn’t been a complete disgrace

With him always being broke

He could find no living space

And tho still unemployed

At least he’s now got his own nice little place

The hell with Superman! We need a hero who knows the science is there. After all, after setting things right in a town, as he rode away, people asked "Who was that masked man?"

I like to hear that crime doesn't pay. Has he now been banged up in the slammer Dave.? I hope so.

Ha, that is a cockney expression. Just goes to show those you trust don't always come up trumps :)
I'm guessing the "nice little place" is a room in a state correctional institution :)

LOL, such ingratitude
A wonderful piece of social commentary. People here in the US are wondering why crime is on the rise, while at the same time oblivously ignoring the exponential rise in homelessness. Desperate people do desperate things. Thank you Dave for another eye opening piece.
