Gas, grass or, sassafras

When I travel abroad,

in order to deter theft,

I always make

sure to have

several different wallets

on me at all times.


One in each pocket of my clothes.


It’s like a shell game

for pick-pockets.


In one pocket there is a wallet

with all my money

& credit cards in it.


And in the others

there is a note that says,


You are not a winner.

Please try again.”
