Purse Snatcher

Sobaco once tried to make a living
as a petty thief
hung around Westside grocery store parking lots
snatched purses from old ladies
but with his fat ass he ran a few steps
and collapsed to the ground
out of breath and sweating
like the San Antonio River

sometimes the old ladies giggled at him
sometimes they threw him a dollar or two
but they never called the cops
bystanders just scratched their heads
and went about their business

sometimes a life of crime
can't even get you time
