Robbing Hakiu

Can you turn a Robbery Bank Note into verse? Below is a link to actual bank robbery notes - some very close to haiku.

I have a gun in my bag.
Give me $5,000 please.
Thanks a bunch.

Robbing a bank is as simple as putting pen to paper. Here are actual demand notes used in successful and unsuccessful unarmed bank robberies - - accompanied by a photo of each robber and appended with details about the robbery itself.

For some reason, bank robbers seem to leave out the season word.

Falling leaves, chill winds.
Heating a house costs money:
Give me all you got.

Look, I have a gun
Give me money fast. Real fast:
I'm parked in snow zone.

In the summer time
living is easy-- if you
don't push that alarm.

This site is almost as good as icanhazcheezeburger...

My favorites are when they end with "thanks" or "please".
