The Burglar’s Wife
Such a life for the burglar’s wife!
She can never hold her head up high.
Her larcenous mate who lies in wait,
To steal your goodies by and by,
Is full of charm but means to harm
The innocent in their homes.
They would be aghast and turn at last
From the one who nightly roams.
But the truth is rare even over there,
The secrets are never explained:
It is he who dares, who sneaks up stairs —
But she who is the brains!
