They Had “No Idea” It Was Stolen


By Elton Camp


These days, it is especially nice

To find an item at a bargain price


A half-price car Reginald got

But had to meet in a parking lot


“Cash only,” the seller did say

He’d mail the car title right away


An advertisement for rings Meg spied

Right there in the newspaper classified


She had to drive into the country rather far

To see jewelry from the trunk of his car


The prices were simply incredible, though

She bought several items and was on the go


A sixty-inch flat screen television set

For only fifty bucks, Joe was able to get


It was delivered in an old, beat-up truck

Joe simply couldn’t believe his luck


The stolen items the police confiscated

Thus, the “bargains” they much hated


When word of the buys the cops got

All said, “We had no idea it was hot!”


Suspicious circumstances they had to see

To such purchases should never agree
