Terry Mar

Identity Theft - Poem by Terry Mar

I am warned by many
to protect who I am
My identity may be taken
by some electronic scam

Now this perpetrator
will spend what I do not have
And the pain will not ease
with any ointment or salve

I am told many months
and even years it will take
To straighten out and clear
this awful identity mistake

I reflect a moment
at the system we have in place
Innocent til proven guilty
someone else they should chase

A criminal set free
by something not said
Yet charge things to my name
and I am financially dead

I help pay his lawyer
the system sets him free
While I spend my time
straightening out my identity

    Very good Terry and very true - the criminal seems to have more rights than the victims these days.. (Report) Reply

    It's a criminal's world because the people chose to obey criminals placed above them, like politicians, religious leaders, etc. These people, like the high ranking clergy, etc. chose to protect these people, like the pedephiles because they have to take care of their own, to take care of themselves. It's the only explanation. (Report) Reply
