Diebstahl

The law locks up the man or woman
Who steals the goose off the commons
But leaves the greater villain loose
Who steals the common from the goose.

The law demands that we atone
When we take things we do not own
But leaves the lords and ladies fine
Who takes things that are yours and mine.

The law locks up the man or woman
Who steals the goose from off the common
And geese will steal a common lack
Till they go and steal it back.
