Shoplifting (right and wrong)

Cheap pink plastic jewelry

She wanted it

That’s all she knew

At four or five

She walked out with it

No one even

Blinked an eye

Her brother made her

Take it back

The moral conscience

Of “right” versus

“You’re gonna be in trouble

when dad gets home.”

She was never good at thievery
