Scared Money by Mark Anthony Given

HOW MANY BANKS did I have to rob with my trusty Bic Pen at ten grand a pop before I stopped being scared? Seventy-Five banks in a dozen jurisdiction estimated two and a half million dollars in less than two years... For sentencing purposes, the federal courts count the total of the checks I deposited, not the amount I withdrew...  I didn't matter to me.  When I got to federal prison and began researching my Restitution issue I discovered that the punishment for federal bank fraud changed from five (5) years to Twenty (20)!!! Within months of my last offense and arrest...  Did I tell you I was born with a Star on my Ass?

THE VERY FEW times I robbed a bank with a pretty face and a smile, that I wasn't scared was when I brought my best friend with me and I showed him how to do it for fifty per…

BOLO:  Be On The Look Out
            LAST SEEN heading South possibly in a blacked out jacked up 2017 Ford F-250 after passing out hundred dollar bills like penny candy at local homeless shelters and community centers.  Suspect FLOWER'S is wanted for causing a sixteen-mile traffic standstill after lifting the lid on one of the giant two blue igloo coolers and letting brand new hundred dollar bills blow out for a file mile streak along Interstate 90.  Portions of the interstate were closed for three days removing abandoned vehicles.  Authorities haven't identified a particular statute to charge SUSPECT FLOWER'S with but he's believed to in a "lot of trouble."

I WROTE a story about a Real Life Heist and turned it into a screenplay which became a major motion picture which became a box office smash which sold millions of books which made me famous and contagious;  I should have never placed my picture on the fly leaf... FIRST THING that went wrong was my personal assistant hired through a big head-hunter firm in New York turned out to be addicted to drugs and swiped a bunch of my personal effects I had had since was a kid, not to mention opening up several debit cards in my name and robbing me blind.  I got all the money back and she's sitting in the Los Angeles County jail right now, where I hope she stays. Then I reluctantly let a family member live in the guest/pool house and they got drunk the first night there and took out a whole row of my neighbors' fancy cars in the canyons:  six to be exact. MY AGENT DIED and his wife absco…

Trouble Man (1995 The Master Version)

I come up hard baby, but now I'm cool
I didn't make it sugar, playin' by the rules
I come up hard baby, but now I'm fine
I'm checkin' trouble sugar, movin' down the line
I come up hard baby, but that's okay
'Cause trouble man, don't get in my way
I come up hard baby, I've been for real
Gonna keep movin', gonna go to town
I come up hard baby, I'm gettin' down
There's only three things that for sure
Taxes, death and trouble
This I know baby, this I know sugar
Girl Ain't gon let it sweat me babe Got me singin', yeah, yeah, ooh

I come up hard, come up hard, I had to win
Then start all over and win again
I come up hard but that's okay
'Cause trouble man don't get in my way, hey, hey I know…

Me and My Monkey by Mark Anthony Given

I don't do drugs. I am drugs.  -Salvador Dali Destroy what destroys you.
PEOPLE WHO OD are idiots.  I think it's the Earth's way of cleansing waste product.  If you don't know what you're doing, you shouldn't be fucking with it.  I shot dope probably a hundred times when I was young and stupid and 'life's value was unseen and under-appreciated.  I remember being in some dope den in the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans back in the Eighties, busting out alcohol pads and a 'Party Pack of U-100 Ultra Fine's and the couple idiots I was with, one of whom claimed the house belonged to his aunt 'and left vacant after she died.   Oyster Shell ground up and used for asphalt streets, overgrown and vacant lots next to fenced-in pink stucco shotgun homes, with expensive cars penned up in the front yard.  This was way before Katrina and looks completely civilized now.  Back then, only bad things happened back there.         THEY LOOKED at me like I was from a…

Him Baby by Mark Anthony Given

Oh listen you men, I don't mean no harm If you wanna do good, you better stay off old Parchman Farm We got to work in the mornin', just at dawn of day Just at the settin' of the sun, that's when the work is done Bukka White, "Parchman Farm Blues" ________________________________________________
"Parchman's Farm," the Mississippi State Prison at the foot of the Mississippi Delta and the "Home of the Blues," just down the road, maintains the inner recess of every Southern Man's mind when in a fit of anger reaches for that rifle to settle his disputes.  It has Inspired hit songs, housed white protesters and "Freedom Riders," in the sixties. Cinema death row scenes and still had "Tunk Houses," when I was at Camp Eight the final months before my release in the early 1980's for a drug store burglary I have written about several times here on Real Life Heist, i.e., "The …
