Exhibitionist Arrested Again

The call comes in
to the police station.
It’s a small town and
the voice at the library
says “He’s at it again.”
The cops go over
and climb the stairs
to the top floor
and find him as always
reading in the stacks.
An old professor
in a suit and tie
with many degrees
who loves books.
Kooky to a fault.
At the station
they ask him again
why do you do this
especially in a library.
The old professor says
the library is where
he likes to hang out.
