Code of a gentleman thief

I am not made of what makes a man what he is
I don't fight, argue or even debate
My talents are lying, cheating and stealing
They are my best qualities, you might say
you might think that queer but it's what makes me

Lying can be an amazing tool in the right hands
Along with innocent or even pathetic looks

Cheating, well that is a hard one
it should only be used on a great evil
maybe a old enemy
a bullie from times for distant
but still remembered

And stealing my personal favorite


It beats working for your bread
