  • Some rob the rich to give to the poor

    e.g Robin Hood

    Some rob the poor to give to the rich

    e.g Cameron's Granny Tax

    Some even rob the poor to give to the poor

    And some are known to rob the rich to give to the rich.

    But these are few and far between-

    Almost a rarity

    For those who rob rich and poor and give to nobody

    Constitute by far the largest majority.
