I hied me to the local mall
To look for drugs to get me high.
I saw my dealer, muttered “Hi”—
But he was not amused at all.
“Heigh! Look!” he cried. “There on the top
Of that high hanging balcony!
I hope you see what I can see!”
I looked and saw a narc—a cop.
And then I ran—but saw on sale
A pair of shorts I really liked.
I stopped. Oh, I was really psyched!
The next I knew I was in jail.
