This conman is a crafty one, eccentric and aloof
He has many aliases, his fake passports are the proof
Why would he escape prison, with a matter of months to go?
What were his initial motives? Perhaps he doesn’t know
Neal doesn’t look his usual self, dressed in prison clothes
He seems refined somehow, even though he’s wearing those.
He’s composed and witty: he wants to strike a bargain with me
But why after he ran, does he suppose I should set him free?
