Sometimes you have to steal what is rightfully yours.
An amazing chain of events
Beyond any bodies control
Created such a strange response
Dictator started a patrol
Every side street and alley
Finding what evidence they could
Gathering the information
Hoping to end this threat for good
In the shadows of a building
Just a couple steps from the street
Keeping still and very quiet
Low down he crouched over his feet
Making less than a peep of noise
Not wanting for them to find him
Only the sounds of his breathing
Perfectly still, every limb
Quietly as the dead of night
Right in front of everyone’s eyes
Sneaky as a bandit could be
Taking his long sought after prize
Using nothing for distraction
Very brazen in broad daylight
With no concern for his safety
Xeroxed all in plain open sight
You could say he saved the world
Zone by zone rebellion swirled.
