Mob mentality

It needn’t come as a surprise
The number of people who engage
In some illicit trade
At some point in their lives

Consider the timeless predicament
Of those who choose between
The lucrative path well-travelled
Or some nobler yet modest means

The expense to such persons
Is profound in due course
Decline of mere dignity
Whether or not remorse

Inevitable hostility to
Sheer corrective force
Which leads to an eventual
Incarceration or demise

Or so they say..
