    I robbed a bank once as a member of the Sardine-Eaters – basically a gang of incontinent masked whippets. We robbed it of its dignity, man.

      Heavy. So you were a whippet once? Your CV continues to impress.

    I don’t want to rob banks – just steal a few moments of your time with my verses…
    This is a greater theft…as time once robbed, cannot be replaced.
    Poets are the ultimate robbers…of the most precious thing…Time.
