Stop! Pocket Search!

This poem was written for Pensitivity 101’s Three Things Challenge #352

Today’s three Prompt’s are: Cash, Envelope, Mobile

Here’s my attempt …

Stop! Pocket Search!

Police! Yes you — I demand you stop

Come on, over here. It’s a fair cop

I know you’ve been committing a crime

Now empty your pockets one at a time

What do you keep in your coat pocket?

A mobile phone. Stolen ring and locket

There will be cash hidden somewhere

Maybe a brush with a few strands of hair

The inside pocket has and envelope concealed

I’ll discover what it hides, for now its sealed

Struth! You even have a pocket knife

Please tell me its not for causing strife

Why do you have a second mobile phone?

Eeww, gross! That’s a mouldy scone

No, you can’t eat it later, it’ll do you harm

Middle pocket? Gloves and blueberry lip balm

Someone else’s’ ID, a ticket for the train

I don’t believe it! A mini bottle of champagne

Third phone, more cash you’re up to no good

Where’s the drugs you’ve been selling in the hood?

Cigarettes, vape pen, mints and a lighter

Condoms – safety first, dirty blighter

That’s it, matey. You’re under arrest

For the crimes your envelope will attest

Thanks for reading my friends. As always there are more stories to be enjoyed (I hope) in the Short Stories and Short Stories 2 tabs. There’s also poetry here in Poetry Corner

Have a great day!
