The Thief & the Housebreaker (poem) (Or, the ‘Crook Caballero’)

The Crook Caballero

Disparagingly, the thief keeps his imagination at white heat, glorifying his own attitude.
Unarmed without this heat, the slightest unexpected, overtakes him!
He has a way he must think, and act, lest he be overtaken, as previously mentioned, thus:
He is the rebel, and everyone else the fool!
He is imperturbable: calm and collected!
His inferiority has left him, and he likes it that way.
Impetuous, he must harness his forceful energy or emotion,
His impulsiveness and passion!
Cutting corners—is illuminated.
The gullible years are gone, Evil is no longer a dirty hue, nor a soiled collar, but inspirational.
Evil vs. good, thinking is a hindrance, to a thief or housebreaker, both words are nullified.
The Devil says: ‘Take it but don’t get caught, because you’re on your own then!’
Actually, he’ll never tell you that absolute, but he’s thinking it all the same.

What is the problem with the thief and the housebreaker?
Or is there one?
My best conjecture is: there is usually so much mud in the water s/he lives in, one can seldom see to the bottom.
