You turned into the convenience store
bought yourself some gum
then off for 12 gallons of gas
at the second pump
Into the giant big box store
stocking up on soup
over to the dry cleaners then
picking up a suit
Later in the hardware store
you said you had to kill some pests
bought up jars of rat poison
just to plan ahead

My client knows you want her dead
She won’t give you the chance
I’ll hit you with this stolen car
As you’re taking out the trash
