A Life Of Crime

He began his life of crime at the innocent age of two,
When he STOLE the hearts of those who loved him true!

At age five he PILFERED cookies from his mommy's cookie jars,
And at the age of ten, began SMOKING by puffing on his Pa's cigars!

At around the age of twelve he started STEALING kisses,
From all the pretty unsuspecting neighborhood misses!

He BULLIED and BLOODIED the noses of kids at school,
And for that was EXPELLED which was the principal's unwavering rule!

He began serious DRINKING and his family's name he did besmirch,
By sipping too much communion wine when offered at his church!

The climax of his life of crime occurred when at age seventeen,
He committed a serious crime and upon ARREST caused quite a scene!

It seems that he BORROWED a car that wasn't his'n,
And for that the judge remanded him to a year in prison!
