From Dr. Larry

Dr. Larry Gelman is fiercely devoted to each client, with a deep and profound respect for their own self-agency and self-determination.

Robbed at Gunpoint

Robbed at gunpoint by only three men.
Three against one seemed like overkill then.

Money they wanted and demanded it now.
If I refused, they promised to shoot me...pow!

I said, if you please, a moment will I need.
Assessing if I ought to acquiesce or bleed.

Surprised were their faces when asked I for time.
We got the gun, sucker; can drop you on a dime!

Gun pointed directly an inch from my chest.
Heart pounding furiously unable to rest.

Thought crossed my mind, I might fight my way out.
But then quickly realized I could not even shout.

Said gun grew larger, a real Colt 45.
Knew I had slim chance to remain still alive.

Gave up all, of all, of half of my cash.
In the other pocket hidden was more of the stash.

A peaceful calm calmly swept over me.
As I experienced the experience of being free.

Lucky was I to not have been killed.
However, even at gunpoint retained I free will.

Always a choice did I always have to make.
When three robbers, at gunpoint, my money did take.
