Ode to a Failed Bike Thief

A bum spots a bike that looks like an easy hit
Despite the onlooking crowd, he doesn’t hesitate a bit

He tries to pry the lock free
But soon realizes this is not a case for ingenuity

He gives the lock a mighty tug hoping it will break
This guy is lower than a snake

Time and again, he pulls with all his might
He finally gives up and disappears from sight

Disgusted, he returns and yanks on it one more time
But all his work didn’t net him a dime

If he put that kind of effort into finding a job
He wouldn’t need to steal and rob
