#100poems Seventeen: Mugshot

Thanks, @sullenhearts

This crime wave, well it’s just a cry for help
They’re getting caught on purpose.
They do not even care about the loot.
It’s just the mugshot.

That thrill of being seen
And documented, looking uncontrite.

They do not really want to smuggle drugs
Or murder anyone.

They’re unfulfilled.
They dream of being on camera,
Just waiting to be told
By the police photographer
That they are real.
