I was abaft the binnacle one midsummer's morn

When the Thief Bot came by and cackled with scorn!

Me men pursued for forty days,

Our sails unfurled, our hearts ablaze.

 

We nearly corned against a door

This ancient fiend of legend and lore.

Aimed the cannons; nine we fired,

But it slipped away and me men grew tired.

 

We chased it to a corner small.

Our cannons hit both bot and wall.

It drew us over waters deep

Where whales play and krakens sleep.

 

Like mad we fired every cannon,

Launched all the harpoons and even James Flannen.

At last it burst, returned our things:

Bob's boot, John's hat, and Donald's rings.

 

And that's the tale; now we're here,

Our ship well-stocked and whales near.

Loved it. Got a distinct "Ahab and the White Whale" feeling from the poem, but fortunately there was a happier ending. The Bandit was a real @#$%er to deal with sometimes, and I can't remember the last time a developer included a "thief-like" enemy in a game. Payday 2 has the "Cloaker", who can one-hit knock you down, as a difficulty tweak. All non-special enemies will also "steal back" any loot in bags that is near them. That's not quite the same, though...
