A Little Girl’s Heist Primer

by kholinar

My Gertrude, when burgling
with outhouse mien,
the pillaging blackguards
work best in the scene.

Take lockpick and blackjack
and tune your garrote
to anything by Cohen
or pale English blokes.

It’s a thick doorjam
so bring a steak knife.
The condo’s own combo
is two-three-four-strife.

Withhold your escape route
until the boat sinks.
Then dole out the specie
‘tween nose-leech* and skinks.

*You probably don’t want to look this up. Trust me on this.
