Identity Theft ... A Poem ...

This is something I wrote today, in my head while driving. I was listening to one of my favorite ecclectic bands, the Crash Test Dummies. The title song from Ghosts that Haunt Me has always been a personal favorite of mine ... but I suddenly asked myself, what if we never did "shake their bony hands and so dispell the gloom ..."?

Hence, the poem below, lol ...

Identity Theft

by Lyle Bateman

What if
the skeletons in my closet
decided to try on all my clothes
and go out to theatre
or dinner and drinks with friends
could I still call it identity theft?
