“I remember meeting you before.”
Says the robber,
“You were in some patrolling shit.
Gave me a speeding ticket.”
“And you were returning from a job?”
“No. I was not into crime.”
“This does not make a good story.”
“You still had those eyes
As if you were from the future
Warning me to mind my gears.”
“I changed my career.”
