Finders And Keepers

Finders keepers.
Finders find what the
Keepers keep.

Whether it is a
Shiny gold penny or a
Broken old clock.

Finders find and the
Keepers keep.

That is the way that it is.
That is how life is.
That is how it has always been.
That is how it always will be.

Keepers can’t find and the
Finders can’t keep what they
Find.

That is not the way it works.
That is not how it goes.
Because that would go against the
Rules.

The rules strictly say that the
Finders find and the
Keepers keep.

The rules cannot be broken.
The rules will never be broken.
The rules are meant to be kept.

So, we will abide by them.
Even if they don’t seem to be
Fair.

We will keep the rules.
We must keep the rules.
You, my dear child, must obey the
Rules.

And we all will have
Peace.
