The crash dummy

Tightening your belt
fighting austerity
banging on the doors
of those in authority,

easier to blow a safe

(and I am aware that blowing a safe
could be construed as being sexual)
but
if you’re thinking that way
you
deserve to be locked up.

In confession he gave me
absolution,
told me
to steer well clear of corruption,

I think he was having a laugh.
