it was a matter of life or death - ask for it nicely or commit the theft
and although he was known to be deft - not subtle enough for the company kept
he's awfully sorry
forgot his apology
losing his wits as his tongue falls to bits
one foot over
the other and gone
taking the bullet on his back - bang!

pour the other part out
and take a sip my son
you've got a lemon on your back
and it's souring your posture

it was a thing to behold from afar - like somebody famous or a company car
he'd put his heart in an old jam jar - and held it out in front to cover the scar
he's awfully sorry
for forgetting his apology
losing his wits as his body falls to bits
one foot over
the other and gone
taking the slugs to the back - bang!

you've got a lemon on your back
and a pineapple up the rear
it's rather souring your posture

he's known to be deft but blind
a very nice man but a very bad find
and he's got all the familiar signs
of a fucking thief

I like this. I'm not too keen on the theft/deft rhyme, it just seems cheesy, but it's really the only instance of that in this piece. There's not much I can say, really.
