Robbers Are Everywhere is the story of a poor man who turns the tables on a greedy rich woman, using her own greed to trick her into returning his few precious coins she has tricked from him. 

A poor man must go on a trip and entrusts his meagre bag of coins to a rich woman in his absence.  On his return she gives him a bag containing stones and denies all knowledge of his coins.  The man tells everyone in the market place that this bag contains jewels.  The woman hears this and, greedy as ever, insists he take back the bag with his coins in exchange for the bag of "jewels."  Which he is very happy to do.

Published in Stones.
