King of the Five-Finger Discount

If I were the king of five-finger discounts I’d shoplift all bullets from guns, I’d shoplift heartbreak from broken love. If I could, I’d shoplift evil from our human condition. I’d shoplift wars, make people talk and listen. I’d shoplift the forgetting from aged minds. I’d shoplift the chains and hate that bind. I’d shoplift the tears from babies’ eyes. I’d shoplift the pain from separated families’ cries.
