The Thief and the Golden Weathervane

The thief hated his neighbors privilege and conspicuous consumption, but reluctantly remained friendly.

Shaved the neighbor’s gold weathervane nightly in secret and hides the dust where only he knows.

The thief plans to eventually pawn the saved lump of gold several years later.

The night before the great pawn a storm slips by undetected by the altered weathervane and takes the thief’s life.
