I WAS ROBBED ONCE, TWICE, THRICE
it was by the very same youth
who had been invited to my house party
when he laughed at my naivety
i determined to end the movie
before it became a franchise
He did not believe it when i called the police
had him charged with theft of belongings
(restitution was impossible-everything was gone)
So he wrote to me from prison asking forgiveness
I wrote back saying forgiveness comes with change of heart
and neither his heart nor mine had changed.
He did not return to rob.I have been robbed before
and will be again.And the point has always been-
it is not what you choose to steal.It is your opinion of me
that is the real theft.
