Poetry: “Mary #2” (from August 2008)

Mary ran a little scam in person or [on] the phone

Better guard your assets if she’s in you home

Watch her every minute. Do not let her roam,

Or through your belongings she is sure to comb.

Mary ran a little scam, she’d fleece ’em in the snow

It didn’t faze her at all that she caused a lot of woe,

And everywhere that Mary went the po-lice failed to show

Mary ran a little scam. Don’t let her in your house.

She can rob you blind, as quiet as a mouse.

Don’t be fooled, distracted by her loosened blouse

For her heart there ex-ists a cold, black-hearted louse.

One guy she ripped-off had a Christmas not-so merry

After eating too much ham, he had a coronary.

Mary had her comeuppance, some thought it was a joke,

While robbing a poor sucker she had a fatal stroke;

And she smoked tobacco, so she was often broke.
