A message for unknown burglar
This is for the person who broke into my home on Dec. 11.
I didn’t mind that you took all my Christmas money; I didn’t mind you took all my silver dollars, two dollar bills, the wheat pennies and a whole lot of other silver coins; I didn’t mind you tore the things out of the desk and drawers and left all over the floor and bed; I didn’t mind you took that ring and my one gold necklace.
I didn’t even mind you took the cat food, chewing gum and postage stamps but I sure as hell hated that you broke that window and threw glass all over, then came into my home without invitation with the very intention of stealing from me. I hope the police catch you.
