A cocky prisoner

If you don't have permission,
You face admonition,
Said the judge, when she lectured the thief
Caught after a spree;
She let him go free,
And he laughed in her face with relief.

Called back to the dock,
He got quite a shock,
Hearing manners were never exempt.
Then he burst into tears
When he got seven years,
No remission, sent down for contempt.
