Jack is not an astute businessman, trades cow for beans. 
Mother distraught. Jack plans robbery by means of fairy tale. 
Steals bag of gold, retreats.  
Returns, steals golden goose, retreats. 
Returns third time, steals singing harp. 
Jack is a triple offender, a recidivist. 
Makes getaway but has to kill rightful owner, 
so is now murderer as well.
Wealth buys lawyers, Jack is cleared, 
rich beyond measure.
