First Crime

I spend only
moments thinking.
Just the smallest time.
Then I am prepared
To focus on the crime.

It is assumed by all
that I am the mastermind
and only one other knows
this isn’t how it is;
this is simply a blind.

For you are the master-criminal,
I’m just an apprentice thief,
I am the junior partner,
you are the genuine chief.

Everyone involved is duped,
including your second in command,
false trails are laid and spoken,
with diversions in mind.

When the cops come calling
I’m left here on my own.
I thought I did trust you
but betrayer’s seeds are sown.
