A Bank Fraud

Rating: 2.8

He drank strong waters and his speech was coarse;
He purchased raiment and forbore to pay';
He stuck a trusting junior with a horse,
And won gymkhanas in a doubtful way.
Then 'twixt a vice and folly, turned aside
To do good deeds and straight to cloak them, lied.

Then 'twixt a vice and folly, turned aside To do good deeds and straight to cloak them, lied. /// there many mystery are hidden in the good deeds of a fraud, a liar; maybe these good deeds are trap of virtuous lives destruction; so there are no need to be happy or to do praise if we find any good deed of a by born liar or fraud! rather it needs to keep on observation!

Then 'twixt a vice and folly, turned aside To do good deeds and straight to cloak them, lied. /// to do good deeds need to be good minded
