A Consummate Kleptomaniac

This is absolutely out of this universe That a consummate kleptomaniac thinks That he has the right to steal any ranks Any rings, any votes, anybody in the hearse This is scurrilously crazy to try steal To commit murder on 5th. Ave. at midday What kind of world is that? Doomsday Must be around the corner, at the heal Of the hills. A consummate kleptomaniac Thinks that he can get away with murder Any year, any month, any day, and any hour Doesn't he think that God is constantly watching? God is ubiquitous like the loitering air in the streets God is listening carefully and writing the minutes There's a time for the geese, a time for anything There's a time for the pathological liar to get caught Like a greedy whale, to be prosecuted after being cut Profoundly by the sharp Shrapnel shell under the fence A consummate kleptomaniac is bad news. His defense Is no longer appropriate or strong. He is going under Because nobody is above the law. Nobody can alter God's final gavel. God is the sole Supreme at the altar.
