A Poem by Earl Schumacker

New careers in crime. Always a growth industry.



In daytime I wear a Lone Rangers mask

At dusk it is my Zorro mask and scarf

In between I walk around with raccoon families

On a leash to avoid confusion and the virus too

A red bandanna and a cowboy hat are suggested

When going to the bank or off to rob a train

I lost my job for some strange reason

We must remember to bring six shooters

One for each hand if we are so inclined

A new career in crime is needed right away

Because Halloween is only for one day

Children need more than candy to get by

When work is hard to find in these pandemic times
