He Sings Behind Prison Bars Blues

He sings "behind prison bars" blues 'cause he's walked in another man's shoes! He feels so bereft since identity theft only works until one pays his dues. (not for the contest; it's too short)

Andrea This is such a cute and fun write. A lesson taught not to be a crook in a silly and humorous way. Thank you for the great comment on my Yesterday Vs Today poem. LOL Yes, I have the same problem with your poems, remembering what was done or not. Hugs

loved this poem, no matter how many lines you had, a great piece as is, but if the contest calls for 20 lines, i hope you can do something with it, but i love it as it is. thank you for for commenting on Crying Door Knob.

Andrea, even when you screw up or fall short, you are still worth a look and worth reading. Now I, myself, would define that as a true winning poet, which you are. Regards and thank you for all your kind words. They do mean a lot. Regards, Gerard.
