Thieves Rob With Impunity Knowing Even If Rarely Caught Won't Be Prosecuted

 When someone out of work and out of money steals food to survive

Many of us would find compassion and a desire to help within us thrive

But in today’s rising crime wave with consequences for theft nil

Brazen head for the luxury goods after emptying the till

Strolling slowly down  the store aisles stealing fine wines without an ounce of guile

Security guards with cell phone cameras following behind

Almost pointing out more expensive libations for the thief to find

Value of goods stolen less than $900 bucks

Robbed store owner is out of luck

Not a felony only a misdemeanor that will not make the prosecution cut

Released back onto the streets quickly after the jail doors shut

Sure as the Sun rises in the East the thief will steal again and again

Only is question on further stealing is not if but when
