The pickpocket princess

by johncross ( | | )

What she sees valuable, she steals.

She’s a crime doer.

She does it immaculately.

By just a glance she can already tell.


She is vigilant.

She’s slick.

She’s nimble.

She’s like the wind.


She was once a princess.

She was once an adorable baby.

She was once a lovely little girl.

Until dearth.


What made her competent?

Who made her good at it?





Yes, she’s beautiful.

Yes, she’s clever.

Yes, she’s graceful…

In a way no one could ever comprehend.
