The thought that counts

They say it is
the thought that counts.
If that is the case then today
I broke the law several times.
I am an outlaw, much like Robin Hood.
I am this country`s most wanted man;
a master-criminal, a legend`s good.
Before breakfast I planned the
robbery of six banks,
which I carried out before lunch.
By sundown not a single painting
remained on gallery walls.
And now the thought police
are on my trail.
But before nightfall I
replanted an entire rain-forest,
sheltered a third world nation
and stopped a war.
But I must go now.
I can hear the sniffles
of a thought-tracker hound.
