I Cannot Go Into a Library

Libraries are great if you are a time keeper. I am not.
My last fine was over two hundred dollars.
I do not use a library because I do not give back their books.
After I read them, they become MY books. 
Some have been packed up and traveled state to state with me.
I kept thinking I would outgrow this need to make them my own,
but I have not yet.
So I force myself to walk past a library,
Not go inside and not get a card.
I am probably on the FBI’s most wanted list anyway.
Library Felon. Do not check out to her.
Hey! Is that a library? 
It would not hurt to take a peek, right?

I sent my husband in for a book once assuring him maybe I did not have to pay a fine this time. He had to pay $97 on my fine to check out one measly book he wanted to read. This was before AMAZON arrived on the scene.

The camera is out of range returning overdue books without paying the fee, credit/charge inapplicable without admission of guilt--Library faulted for improper measures, but, since I was the sole last user--I was targeted, tho' not fined due to lack of proof--THEY got the books!
