Pennies too Many

You can fool a fool,
you can cheat one’s mind.
You can con a con,
even steal from the blind.

You can shake a shaker,
you can brutalize a Brut.
You can mob a mobster –
and embezzle their loot.

You can charm a charmer,
sell your soul for a penny.
You can take from a taker,
for pennies you have many.

But can you hold a hand,
and experience love for free?
Know true respect for all to see?
Gain one's trust without a fee?
You poor, poor, foolish soul,
who will ever get to know the "real me".

    Ha, I like this one "You can mob a mobster –and embezzle their loot." Nice one, and I like your rhyming scheme... MC
