19) Song of Abduction

English: Gold bars created by Agnico-Eagle

I am lack of air
You are a billionaire
I got no one to care
You got plenty things to spare
You are rare
You must be in the sky somewhere
So, I lock you up
Asking for anything you can bear
First, I share with you my nightmare
Secondly, you share with me how to become a billionaire
I believe this is fair

I am lack of air
You are not that bad
I got no one to care
At least, you have something to spare
You are well aware
You must be working for somebody somewhere
So, I lock you up
Asking you for any peanut can be shared
First, I share with you my nightmare
Secondly, you tell me what rate is fair and square
I believe this is fair

This post was inspired by a news article regarding kidnappers are now diverting their targets.  They are now on lookouts for ordinary people for ransom, as they believe ordinary people are easier targets to them, as they have no security guards protecting them.  Besides, the lower ransom they demanded is much easier to be fulfilled than the huge payoffs.  This is real crime case happening in a country somewhere.

  1. What a terrible thing, having average, hard-working people kidnapped. Great poem, by the way and I’d certainly like to be taught how to become a billionaire.

  2. Great poem! I love weaving real-life news stories into my work, too…though I haven’t tried it with poetry, yet. I think I will have to :)

  3. Wow ! You wrote a poem about kidnapping ! *smile* That’s unique.

  4. Very sad. Kidnapping is one of the worst crimes. But you poem is amazing.
