Hey there! Here's a new Public Enemies oneshot I cooked up one day, while I was watching the film. I got to thinking about John Dillinger (as well as the really neat way Johnny Depp brought him to life in the movie, too).

So this is what I cooked up. Hope you like it. :)

Disclaimer: The geniuses at Universal Pictures own Public Enemies. I own the songfics, oneshots, stories and poems I cook up from time to time.



Wanted bank robber and Public Enemy number 1 John Dillinger liked money as well as the things it could buy. Jewelry, expensive but good stuff, and a beautiful fur coat for a lucky young woman he had had his eye on for some time now. Green stuff. Moolah. Dollars. Bucks. Whatever they called it, it always meant the same darn thing and kept coming back to one single word – money.

A lot of money meant that John could be set for life, and financially, too. Not too much and not too little. Just the right amount.

That was how he really liked it.

That was why he robbed banks.

Because he felt it was time to stand up, be a rebel-slash-hero to the whole country and earn some free cash without working for it.

I'm John Dillinger. I rob banks.

When it came to being the rebel of his day, fewer people would've disagreed with him.

Well, feedback is appreciated, of course. After all, it helps me to write more. :)
