“Now, shush! Be quiet as a church mouse”—so
I heard our leader say. Now let’s be frank:
I felt it odd, for we were set to go
Inside, where we had planned to rob the bank.
It’s weird, I think, alluding to a church—
Our leader really does it all the time–-
As you prepare a massive vault to search.
To mention “church” while you commit a crime!
