Some know the answer already.


 I am rich to the extreme,

I can do, whatever I please.

And I have lived a life that

Only some men dream.

I take from the poor

And help my rich friend’s scheme.

I am a modern day Robin Hood,

With one tiny glitch.


For I lay not in wait,

From the poor from which I take,

I just storm their door

And take more and more.


Untold wealth have I

 and villainous glory is mine.

Someday you will see,

Of that which I partook

Was really a crime,

And if you examined me

You would truly see,

That I am in reality,

a crook.


However for now,

We will leave it at that.

For if I were to reveal too much,

I could not continue to grow fat.

Some of you know who I am

For I watch you everyday.

However,  at this time

I will not say,

For I wish to remain

A mystery.
