I AM THE HIGHWAYMAN

I hide in the shadow
Along the moor
The way I have many times before.

I lay in wait and debate
The honesty I’m lacking.
Tracking the carriage along the trail.

I hardly ever fail,
I mostly prevail.
But my conscience does not convince me.

I am the thief in the night,
I am the charming brigand who strikes.
I am the Highwayman.
