Dodger is the bestest. He’s quicker than all the rest of us put together. He can spot a likely geezer from half a street away, size him up and work out what he’s got that’s worth nicking.
His fingers must be like eels. They can get in anywhere. And out they come with exactly what he wants.
Then it’s off, as fast as an alley cat being chased by dogs. Nobody even sees where he goes.
He looks after the rest of us you know. He’s good like that. We feel safe as houses with him around. Feel like we’re on top of the world.
Will he get caught? Pull the other one. No one will be able to catch him. Not our Dodger. You must be blooming daft. Not our Dodger.
