Thieving Ways (#AtoZChallenge)


Welcome to the A to Z Challenge : 26 Stories during the month of April

Welcome to… The Apartment Building: Swan Rise

(For Links to the previous stories, CLICK HERE)


Jewelry missing,  money disappears

A book, a glistening knick-knack, all gone;

Items go walking; owners are in tears

What was once valued, one day there was none.

Thieves, for this continues over the years;

Swan Rise residents wonder, none the wise

Exactly who takes what, who is to fear

Mysteries abound; rumor on wind flies.

But, with all that is taken, no price paid

Wounded spirits, in resentment, such hate

All who have lost, lost trust most, so dismayed

Countless measures taken, all too, too late.

Leave what is ours, not yours for the take

Who is at the door? Bolts, for our sake.
