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)
if you’re thinking that way
deserve to be locked up.

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

I think he was having a laugh.
